It is a story of a Greek-Catholic priest from Donetsk now living in Lviv. He was kidnapped and imprisoned in Donetsk by pro-Russian fighters. After being released, he spent several months in a hospital recovering after torture.
Gennadiy calls himself "Pastor Crocodile." He's known throughout Ukraine for his years working to rehabilitate drug-addicted kids. But he's also a vigilante who uses any force necessary to carry out his moral vision. Directed by Steve Hoover and executive-produced by Terrence Malick, Almost Holy is an engrossing personal chronicle.
