IN THE NAME OF GOD

40-year-old priest, Theodor, stands by in horror as his wife falls seriously ill. His world crumbles around him and he seeks guidance from his old mentor who convinces him that he has been chosen by God to rid the world of sinners in order to bring new life to true believers. With trembling hands, he commits his first murder, convinced that it is a necessary sacrifice in service of his divine mission. Miraculously, at the moment of the murder, his wife’s health improves and the congregation starts referring to him as the “miracle priest”, knowing nothing of his horrible act. But lurking in the shadows is a disbelieving man who begins to uncover the bloody traces of the priest’s unholy deeds.

IN THE NAME OF GOD is a thrilling story about a priest on a mission to expand his congregation at any cost. The film is directed by Ludvig Gür (Pretending I’m a Superman: The Tony Hawk Video Game Story, 2020) and stars Linus Wahlgren (With One Eye Open, 2021; Beck, 2020), Vilhelm Blomgren (Midsommar, 2019; Gösta, 2019) and Lisa Henni (The Unthinkable, 2018).
