Johanna, a young drug addict, falls into a deep coma after an accident. Doctors miraculously manage to save her from death’s doorstep.

Touched by grace, Johanna cures patients by offering her body. The head doctor is frustrated by her continued rejection, and allies himself with the outraged hospital authorities. They wage war against her but the grateful patients join forces to protect her.

A filmic and musical interpretation of the Passion of Joan of Arc. (
