What happens when a photo of a botched restoration in Spain goes viral and inadvertently helps restore the economy of a struggling town?
Behold the Man is based on a true story. In an attempt to save a forgotten and sadly deteriorated fresco of Jesus, an elderly woman in Spain tries her hand at its restoration, only to make matters worse. Outrage is rampant and threats are made; even the spirit of the original artist gets into the act. When a photo of her botched restoration goes viral, tourists from the world over begin to arrive, helping revitalize the economy of the struggling town. Was it a miracle? Great outsider art? A selfless act of faith? Or just another internet meme?
