Assisi 2006: a troubadour walks the streets of St. Francis of Assisi hometown, singing and playing the «Song of Brother Sun» or «Song of the Creatures», written by St. Francis almost 700 years ago. Woods of Umbria, 1212: during one preaching to the birds, St. Francis suddenly faints. Reanimated by St. Clare, the saint doesn't remember anything. When the night falls, the animals in the forest sing and praise Francis.
