More Details

Synopsis:
Kiril Lakota, a Russian priest, has spent years languishing in a Siberian prison camp for his religious convictions. But he unexpectedly gets a reprieve when the communist government sends him to Rome to help the Vatican prevent a nuclear war. But neither the Soviet hierarchy nor the priest himself forsee that the one-time prisoner will ultimately become the new Pope.

Notes:
Anthony Asquith was originally set to direct, but due to a serious illness (from which he later died), he left just before the film went into production.
