In a dismal and decadent world, a little Saint cares for various beings with suicidal impulses. To keep them alive, he holds them captive in an abandoned church. A strange visit suggests the Saint not interfere with the supreme order of things, where the natural law of martyrs takes precedence over kindness and affection. Since its release Martyris has enjoyed national and international attention for its animation and musical composition.
