The stirring tale of the founder of the Franciscan order unfolds in this biopic of Francis of Assissi the saint who rescinded all worldly goods in favour of living for the poor. Born into a wealthy Umbrian family Francis spent his early years in revelry and was set on a military career until he heard Gods voice in a dream. The rest of his life was spent in the service of the Lord ever simplifying his own possessions while proselytizing far and wide. His gentleness was legendary extending even to the animals with which he came to be associated through his compassion for all beings and his joy in nature.
