Children as young as five and adults of all ages will enjoy the colorful, engaging film.The film features eleven different stories that introduce children to this humble priest’s spirituality and ministry. Each segment features a child who tells a fascinating and true story about Fr. Solanus. As the story unfolds, another child colors a large drawing that is eventually revealed to be a colorful illustration of the segment.

The film was written and produced by veteran Michigan filmmakers Dr. Stan and Pam Williams under their SWC Films banner and was directed principally by Kelly Nieto, the creator of The Cross and the Light stage musical. The original orchestral score was created by Royal Oak, Michigan composer James Stonehouse. Famed Catholic illustrator and graphic novel artist, Sean Lam, created the drawings.
