Purgatory 2021 plot
The film centres around the life of a Polish mystic called Fulla Horak. During the 1920s she used to be a strong atheist and challenged a Christian friend’s faith whilst at a party.
Years later Fulla Horak was not only a Catholic but God had allowed her to see the souls in Purgatory. She compiled her visions into a book which was titled Afterlife. Other mystics, such as Padre Pio also aided Horak and her visions.
Horak continues to have visions of souls who are begging her to pray for them and is mourning how their own family have already forgotten them.
One of them was St. Stanislaus Papczyński, who died in 1701. He founded the Marian Fathers after having visions of the Holy Spirit, the memory of the souls who are not alive are intense within him, particularly strong in him. He recommended to his brethren: “Pray, brothers, for the souls in Purgatory, for they suffer an unbearable torment”.
The film displays a major revelation and answers what the purgatory understood about life after death. Book theatre tickets now to watch this intense horror.
