A group of freshmen in an orthodox college are introduced in a world of cons, pleasure and money, but they soon discover that’s not the way one’s life should be lead.

Curator’s sight:

Daniel Sandu makes a film ispired by his teenage experience in an seminary, precisely unmasking the institution’s hypocrisy without leaving much to the imagination. One Step Behind the Seraphim is a compelling and disturbing journey on the path to becoming a priest in Romania in an extremely competitive environment, where one does not need a vocation to survive and true spirituality could be an obstacle.
