But suddenly the calm atmosphere of the habitation takes a 360-degree change, when the new priest walks in, replacing the old one(however in a temporary order). Things turn extremely positive miraculously. Well, human lives are full of ups and downs but the life of the islanders was only going ups after the arrival of the new pastor.

The non-believers of the church also somehow begin attending the Sunday masses to start their new set of life. It was all going great, until…
