SHINE WELL tells about Indian monks, who be prepared in Kerala, the heartland of the Indian Catholicism, to go out to save the religion in the world. They are posted to cushion the shortage of priests in the western churches. In return transfer payments flows to India to pay the training and the work of the monks.The young monks of India still see a real task to help humans in need. In Bavaria they meet a church who is in a crisis and who lost for a lot of people the the right to existence. With passion, optimism and an admirable toughness they provide the training in India as well as all spiritual and temporal challenges in Germany. Sometimes Indian irony cuts thereby German bureaucracy.
