Freely inspired by real events, The Saint follows the mystical path of Mackenzie Michaud, a soft-spoken cleaning lady with a simple soul. After losing her job and being molested by the manager of pyramid selling company, she reveals that she has had a vision of the Virgin Mary. Endorsed by the ambitious and ambiguous village priest, the history of the Madonna's apparition spreads in the province, and brings Mackenzie unexpected popularity. Thence Mackenzie discovers the perverse pleasure of  power and adoration that will transform the silent and shy girl into the charismatic leader of a controversial sect founded on violence, money and the cult of her personality.
