SYNOPSIS:
THE SHOES OF THE FISHERMAN

After twenty years in a Siberian labor camp, Kiril Lakota (Anthony Quinn), the Metropolitan Archbishop of Lvov, is set free by USSR president Piotr Ilyich Kamenev (Laurence Olivier). The Catholic Archbishop is released and sent to Rome, where the ailing Pope (John Gielgud) makes him a Cardinal. The world is in a state of crisis - a famine in China is exacerbated by United States restrictions on Chinese trade and the ongoing Chinese-Soviet feud. When the Pontiff dies, Lakota finds himself elected Pope. But the new Pope Kiril I is plagued by self-doubt, by his years in prison, and by the strange world he knows so little about. This movie contains extensive information about Catholic faith & practice, as a television news reporter steps in from time-to-time to explain the procedures involved in selecting a new Pope.
