Simone: A Saint for Outsiders is based upon the life of the Frenchwoman, Simone Weil, who became a “Dorothy Day” in France. Confounded by illness, war, and hunted by the Nazis, Simone left a legacy of inspirations which usher one’s soul directly to its Creator.

Young Simone Weil amazes some and shocks others as she plunges into the world, offending authorities. Leading a stoneworkers’ strike, she is arrested. Seeking justice, Simone toils alongside fishermen, factory workers, and refugees, giving away her ration stamps. She volunteers for the Spanish Civil War and is disillusioned with war’s cruelties. Hunted by the Nazis, she confides to Father Perrin how Christ came to her, possessing her soul. Labeled a Toadstool on the Manure Pile, Simone breaks herself for the dispossessed and is transformed into The Saint for Outsiders. (Based upon the life of the French mystic, Simone Weil, 1909-1943).
