FULL OF GRACE
Sister Marina, a very unorthodox nun, is sent during the summer of 1994 to El Parral, a boarding school for boys threatened to be closed soon. Even though the kids welcome Marina with all kinds of pranks, they will, little by little, become something very close to the family they never had.
Beyond all the humor, what makes the film truly special is the cunning and courage it took for this woman to inspire these kids and impart values to them. Thus the film speaks of true teaching, one that is persevering and that understands that a child always deserves a second chance. It is also a story that talks about the concept of “home” and of the need to shape a true family. This is the heart of this story and one should approach it with elegance and a sense of responsibility.
