St. Swithun was named after an ancient saint of England often invoked for the weather. As a young man he travelled the continent before he met and married his devoutly Catholic wife, Alice. St. Swithun loved to share the faith during a troubled time in England and put himself out to ensure that the Mass was made available. He built a secret room in his London house where his friends could celebrate Mass and when it was finally discovered he joyfully faced his calling, leaving us a moving and inspiring witness of Catholic faithfulness. Featuring moments of creation and beauty with original haunting and medieval music written for the film.
