What do you do when, following your calling, you are faced with the threat of death, but there’s a way out? Do you ignore the threats and continue to do what you believe in? Do you leave, taking the threats as a legitimate suggestion that you’ve done your duty? Or is that giving in?
These are the questions facing a group of Cistercian monks in Of Gods and Men as Islamic extremism sweeps through their region. Loosely based on events in North Africa in the early 1990s, the film follows these eight men as they battle with their calling and whether to leave or stay at their monastery.
