This biographical drama tells the story of St. Pedro Poveda, a tenacious and innovative priest who opened new paths in education, and also pioneered the rights of women in the early twentieth century Spain. Poveda's success in educating and helping poor illiterate children living in the Caves of Gaudix received staunch opposition, causing him to move his work to Covadonga, in the nothern mountains. Poveda continued his work in spite of the social and political turmoil that intensified in the beginning of the thirties and escalated into a civil war. Caught in the middle of the conflict, Poveda, a man of peace, gave his life for the Catholic faith, leaving behind a great legacy of light and hope. SPPOM
