Martin Luther (Stacy Keach) had many complaints about the Pope and the Roman Catholic Church. In this portrait of personality and issues, he founds a rival religious movement that sweeps over parts of the future countries of Germany and the Scandinavian areas. His opposition to religious rule as infallible in the 1400s begins to spawn more deeply held political movements that Luther did not expect nor support. Showing him as a young and uncomfortable cleric, Luther has conflicts with his father (Patrick Magee). With his new supportive wife Katherine (Judi Dench), the former Augustinian monk begins his Reformation of the era despite arguments and pleas from the Pope’s emissary (Alan Badel).
