Seelisberg, a small mountain community, is home to the Rütli slopes where Switzerland was founded some 700 years ago. This community is in turmoil. The catholic church has sent a new priest to minister the very conservative congregation: Chidi Ilechukwu, from Nigeria. Like in the old times, the black communities of Africa had to cope with the white missionaries, this white community right in the heart of Switzerland has now to cope with the new ideas of a black priest. Chidi has introduced drums, dancing and joy to the traditional services, not to the liking of everyone. The joyful nature of the new priest has already won over some of the hearts, but to many of the older people his presence in the church of Seelisberg is something that just shouldn't be. And Chidi himself struggles with loneliness, for the Swiss are mostly quite a solitary breed. This documentary tells the classic story of a clash of cultures and how a smile can move mountains, even in the Swiss Alps.
