THE PRAYER

Thomas, a twenty-year-old guy who wants to quit his drug addiction joins a community of young men from different countries and social backgrounds living together in a remote house in the French mountains. Supervised by a Catholic priest, their days revolve around regular prayer, solidarity and hard labour in the fields. Not everyone manages to submit themselves to this monastic existence. However, Thomas must give his new life a chance – could this be the way forward?
