After her butcher's apprenticeship, Mia ran away straight to the big city - but now she has to return to her home town involuntarily. There she meets director Roberto, who has been canceled from the Berlin off-theatre scene and is now trying to secure his financial survival here in the wasteland - hired by Father Iversen, who wants to save the parish of the small village of Winteringen with the help of questionable methods. A grandiose theatrical spectacle is intended to prevent him from having to return to his old life on the Danish island of Falster. But he hasn't reckoned with Mia, who is robbed of her inheritance by his machinations. She persuades Roberto to stage a version of the “Passion of the Christ” that has little to do with the ordered spectacle. The abstruse play is set to propel Roberto into the headlines of all the theater magazines and the parish into the afterlife, as well as the priest out of the village, and becomes a ticking time bomb for all three characters.
