Saving Souls follows the story of one man´s dream about a church which believes in the tradition of the Bible. Markku Koivisto, a Lutheran minister, believes that the end of the world is coming and is in a hurry saving souls. He is disillusioned with the stagnant state church and decides to start one of his own. New church, Nokia Missio, quickly gains popularity as a colorful, living church, full of music and joy. But how do you finance a church; will it get enough members to form a congregation? Koivisto has been cured of lethal cancer by what he calls a miracle; not once, but twice. How have his personal hardships affected his values? Saving Souls is a documentary which immortalizes a historically unique occasion; a revival movement´s secession from the state church.
