Synopsis

Assisi, 1211. Chiara is eighteen years old and one night she runs away from home to join her friend Francesco: from that moment on her life changes forever. With charisma and conviction, she breaks free from her family’s constraints and stands up to the Pope himself. She fights for herself, for the women who join her and for her dream of freedom. The story of a Saint. The story of a girl and her revolution.

Director’s Statement

Francesco’s and Chiara’s stories are really exciting. To rediscover the political, other than spiritual, dimension of their ‘radical’ lives—the choice of poverty, of a life at the margins of an unfair society, the dream and foundation of a community life without any hierarchy or power division—makes us realise, while we question the mysteries of faith and religion, the impact that Franciscan beliefs and practices have had on secular thought. The story of Chiara’s life, unknown to many, offers us the energy of a rebirth, the contagious enthusiasm of youth, but also carries the tragic nature of a revolution, of any revolution worthy of the name.
