A world living in fear of nuclear holocaust...A secret meeting to tip the global balance of power...And one man of faith...With a world poised on the brink of world war, and a humble priest installed in one of the most powerful international positions as a pawn in a plot for geopolitical domination, can one man find the strength to bring peace to the earth? Academy Award winner Anthony Quinn (Alexis Zorbas) stars as Russian bishop and political prisoner Kiril Lakota, who is released to Rome in a Soviet bid to control the Vatican. Elected Pope Kiril, this man surprises the Vatican, the Kremlin and the entire world by holding to his spiritual principles tempered by winters in a Siberian gulag--despite the massive pressure on him from both global powers and the Church that he heads, principles that lead him to make changes that will rock the world.
