This film explores the private experience of prayer and faith in daily life, in a style that is intensely intimate, yet sweeping in scope. A vast international collaboration, the film was shot by over 40 distinguished filmmaking teams around the world who never met or spoke with each other, each contributing a single, private scene, collectively creating a memorable gallery of personal portraits and panoramic spectacle. A coproduction between WLIW LLC in association with WNET, New York's public television station, and Japan's WOWOW.
