Loosely based on the biblical story The Book of Job, My Saints follows Clara, a seven year old with a big secret – her saint figurines come to life. With a seemingly-normal family and the trusty support of her mystical saints, life looks good until Clara’s mother brings home an old flame that reignites her mother’s addictions. The seams quickly unravel and Clara’s home life is shattered. With no one else to turn to, she looks to her saints, but they, too, face a challenge. They must determine just how faithful Clara is, not by guiding her, but by standing back and letting her rely on her faith alone.
