At an auto da fe in 16th century Portugal, Diego Lopes was chained to a stake and a pyre was lit. Then, according to both Christian and Jewish witnesses, he mysteriously disappeared in front of thousands of astonished spectators. The only point of contention was that the Christians believed he was so evil that he was dragged body and soul directly to hell, while the Jews believed he was so righteous that he was taken body and soul up to heaven.

What really happened? And can love, strong enough to cross a religious divide, survive the fires of the Inquisition? The answers to these questions are the story of Acts of Faith.
