The film stars Andreas Muñoz, a Spanish actor who portrays the titular character in the film.

‘If you could hear the voice of God, would you want to keep it secret?’ This is the story of a soldier, a man of vice and violence who, in his attempt to turn to the light, was forced to wrestle with his inner demons to the very brink of death. The film chronicles his valiant but futile defense at the Battle of Pamplona, his struggles with depression and near-suicide, his trial before the Inquisition, and his ultimate vindication.
