Mild Miracles

Participated in: MIDPOINT Series Launch 2024
Country: Croatia

Two of God’s “emissaries” are in Croatia to answer people’s banal prayers which God has no time for. By no means almighty, they do their best to fulfil prayers no matter how strange they are.

Every second there are thousands of prayers sent to God. He can’t answer all of them, so God has his “emissaries” all around the world to attend to those prayers which he has no time to answer. Every prayer sent to God is a mission to be fulfilled by them. These emissaries are not almighty, they don’t perform miracles, because they are human like everyone else. The only difference is that they work for God.

We follow two of them in Dalmatia, Croatia.

Mara, a stern woman, following the word of God, is socially awkward but enjoys her work. Tomo, her pupil, is next in line to become an emissary. He still can’t talk to God so he has to believe Mara’s word, which he usually doubts.

The prayers they attend to are everyday modern problems known to Croatians and Balkans, such as nepotism, corruption, envy, traditionalism…

God doesn’t tell them how to solve these problems, so they usually find themselves in absurd situations with the locals, but they always get the job done.
