Marcos, a.k.a. “The scandal priest”, is a famous pastor and author of a series of books that try to renew the faith of the new generations in the church. Suddenly Heidi, the girl he stopped seeing twenty years ago and with whom he maintained a close friendship during her youth, returns to his life. She belongs to the group Christians of the Church of the Living Word and is determined to sway him from the “road to hell” that Marcos exposes himself to by publishing the books. During the play, Marcos attempts to redeem Heidi from what he considers dangerous fanaticism, while Heidi attempts to redeem Marcos from what she believes to be an exercise in blind and incongruous pride. While trying to save each-other, they fall passionately in love, which changes their lives without seemingly saving either of them.
