Imagine, yourself out in a green field. At this point you are simply a child. You enjoy the flowers, and you enjoy the freedom that innocence could bring. Then, you see a figure. Someone who is of this earth, and yet completely apart from it. Someone who invokes awe and wonder.

Fatima – the 2020 film – tells the story of a Marian Apparition to three shepherd children in 1917 during the revolutions and explosions that were taking place in Portugal during that time.
