Synopsis

Maaria Blomma is a preacher, a healer and a miracle-worker. At her hands, the blind regain their sight, the ears of the deaf are opened, cancer victims are cured, but her powers are not enough to save the world. Maaria admits the futility of her work, but carries it through to the end, because after all it is the only alternative.
