In an attempt to save a forgotten and sadly deteriorated fresco of Jesus, an elderly woman in Borja, Spain, tries her hand at its restoration only to make matters worse. Outrage is rampant and threats are made. Even the ghost of the fresco’s original artist gets into the act. Swept up by social media the story becomes an internet sensation, drawing tourists from around the world, helping restore the woman’s reputation and revitalizing the economy of the struggling town.
