In the second story, Teresa’s sister, Anna Maria, devotes her summer to a missionary trip that she believes will return Austria back to the path of virtue.  Carrying a foot-high statue of the Virgin Mary, she goes door-to-door preaching Catholicism.  One day, after years of absence, her husband, an Egyptian Muslim confined to a wheelchair, returns home. Anna Maria’s life is turned upside down and her prayers are now joined by fighting.  PARADISE: FAITH recounts the stations of the cross of a marriage and longing for love.
