Simon of the Desert
Simon (Claudio Brook) stands on top of a stone column in the middle of the desert and prays for six years, six weeks and six days. In that time, he becomes something of a saint to his people, praised for his unwavering devotion and ability to perform grand miracles in God's name. Despite Simon's counsel and ceaseless penance on their behalf, his followers seem doomed to crumble to temptation. And Simon remains plagued by unrest, uncertainty and the devil herself (Silvia Pinal).
