Michael is the future pope. Before addressing the crowds from the central balcony of St Peter’s, he retires into the “Room of Tears”, the sacristy adjacent to the Sistine Chapel, accompanied by Cardinal Guido Falcone, camerlengo of the Vatican, and by the Master of Liturgical Ceremony, Cardinal Stefan von Harden, while the Swiss Guard are looking for Sofia, an accountant from the Vatican bank.
What secrets do Guido and Stefan share? Why is Sofia in hiding? What does Michale know and what does he suspect? Is he naïve or clear-sighted? Is he innocent or must he share the blame?
A cliff-hanger which brings humour and emotion to its treatment of power, of betrayal, of responsibility, of love, of religion and of personal choice. A comedy that invites humanity to enter the house of God.
