In 1858, in the Jewish quarter of Bologna, the Pope’s soldiers burst into the home of the Mortara family. By order of the cardinal, they have come to take Edgardo, their seven-year-old son. The child had been secretly baptised by his nurse as a baby and the papal law is unquestionable.

Based on incredible true events, this gripping new historical drama from master auteur Marco Bellocchio (The Traitor, Good Morning Night, Vincere) probes historical antisemitism and the arbitrary exercises of influence by the pre-unification Church.
