Synopsis

This powerful documentary profiles the life and work of Mother Antonia (Mary Clark), an American nun who chooses to live among the prisoners in La Mesa Penitentiary in Tijuana, Mexico.

Dove Review

Mother Antonia is an astonishing woman who became a nun after raising her own children. Born and raised in Beverly Hills, she lived a charmed life until she received a calling from the Lord to do more. So she went to Mexico and began living at the prison. She has helped many over the years, not only those in prison but their families, the police and government officials as well. Mother Antonia does all she can to demonstrate the love of God to all those around her.

This woman started many programs in the Tijuana area including clinics, schools and even an organization for older women who want to continue working for God. Her story is compelling and a positive example for all people regardless of age or social status. This film demonstrates one woman’s love and faith that extends to many in a place that most will not go.

We proudly award the Dove “Faith-Friendly” Seal for all ages to this documentary.
