Inspired by true events, CARMEN is a charming story set in a village in the Mediterranean island Malta. Carmen (Natascha McElhone, Designated Survivor," "Ronin," "The Truman Show") has looked after her brother, the priest at the local church, since she was sixteen years old. Now almost fifty, and abandoned by the church, she is suddenly left to start a new life.

Facing her past, and through a set of odd circumstances, she finds herself hearing confessions in a local church, to the delight of many parishioners and the horror of the authorities. Carmen brings colour to the lives of the villagers, making her see the world and herself in a new light. An inspiring story of a woman finding her voice.
