A Man of His Word displays Francis’ reform work, as well as his concerns for the poor, financial inequality in the world, social justice, and environmental issues. In the film, His Holiness calls for peace, by being the first pope to open his doors in order to address today’s issues. In a divided world he hopes to unite us through his words.
