Tu es Petrus (You are Peter): in order to ensure the Church’s continuity, John Paul II carefully pondered on the conclave of cardinals that would follow his death. His goal was to pass on to Peter’s successor the “Keys of the Kingdom” [Matt 16:19]. This documentary follows the dramatic events of 2005: the worsening of Pope Wojtyla’s illness, his last days, the funeral mass and the preparations for the conclave. It concludes with the joyful election of the new Pope Benedict XVI.
