Johanna / Guests Of Honor
Hungary 86 min FictionHungarian2005

A filmic and musical interpretation of the Passion of Joan of Arc.

Johanna, a young drug addict, falls into a deep coma after an accident. Doctors miraculously manage to save her from death’s doorstep. Touched by grace, Johanna becomes a nurse in the hospital and starts curing patients by offering her body. The head doctor is frustrated by her continued rejection of him and allies himself with the outraged hospital authorities, infuriated by her behavior. They wage war against her but grateful patients join forces to protect her.
