An emotive and humorous video portrait of 87 year old Sr Celestino Salazar García.

Following a traumatic family incident, a message from God inspired Celestino to embark on the 25 year long construction of his own outdoor church on the edge of El Cielo (Heaven), a national park in the state of Tamaulipas, Mexico. His life experience and beliefs give him the courage and desire to challenge the notion of the creator, the artist and art itself.
