The Calling reveals candid portraits of three people who are drawn to full-time ministry in a foreign land. Orlando Castillo is a young man from a prosperous family who wishes to ‘live simply’ and serve the poor despite his parents’ reservations. Mother Mary Elizabeth is a woman torn between her call and the emotional needs of her family, and Father Phillip Scott is a priest striving to establish a fledgling mission in his native country of Peru. As their stories unfold, we see the blessings as well as the challenges that their ministries entail. This is a film about commitment to God, loyalty to family, and the faith to discover God’s will.
