A film drama.
[Starring] Henry Fonda
with Dolores Del Rio, J. Carrol Naish
From the novel 'The Power and the Glory' by Graham Greene.

Persecution and ruthless measures by a revolutionary government have suppressed religious observances in a small central American state, and only one priest remains. He is weak, and often unable to live up to the demands made upon him. But through him and despite his failings, the flame of spiritual guidance remains kindled, and a belief in God endures.
