Jacques, a journalist who has recently returned to France after working as a war correspondent in the Middle East, is recruited by the Vatican to sit on a canonical committee investigating the veracity of claims made by an 18-year-old girl named Anna that she has witnessed the apparition of the Virgin Mary outside her village in southern France. Confronted with opposing views from clergy and sceptics sitting on the committee, Jacques gradually uncovers information that challenge his belief system.
