Corpus Christi is the story of a 20-year-old Daniel who experiences a spiritual transformation while living in a Youth Detention Center. He wants to become a priest but this is impossible because of his criminal record.

The arrival of the young, charismatic preacher is an opportunity for the local community to begin the healing process after a tragedy that happened there.
