Edith Stein, adapted from the play by Arthur Giron, explores the life of one of the most controversial Catholic saints. Born a Jew, Edith Stein served as a nurse in the Great War, converted to Catholicism, became a Carmelite nun, agitated for the Church to intervene in the Holocaust, and was later arrested by the Nazi's and executed in Auschwitz. Her canonization and a convent established in her name at Auschwitz would later provoke international outrage. Edith Stein explores the woman behind the controversy, the outcast seeking refuge, the skeptic searching for answers while hanging onto a desperate hope that mankind is worthy of salvation.
