This film presents a profile of Thomas Merton, the spiritual philosopher, Trappist Monk, and anti-war advocate. His autobiography, The Seven Story Mountain has become a modern classic. Merton wrote over 60 other books, dealing eloquently with the interface between religion and social issues. His adamant stance on social equality brought him both accolades and censure. The film features interviews with friends and colleagues and readings from the works of this inspirational figure of the 20th century. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter, Rovi, Rovi
