Elisabeth is completely devoted to her faith, her two sons, and her work as a Catholic radio host where she evinces profound empathy for the sufferings of people around the world. After an unexpected family tragedy, Elisabeth summons an inveterate and unexpected strength that enables her to face her new situation in a way she never imagined. With intransigent determination she stands up against the hypocrisy of the Catholic Church whose obdurate silence introduces chaos into its flock.
