  • Setting
    Set in an abandoned church in an unnamed eastern European country.
  • Overview
    Pentecost brings together art and politics. Oft subjugated, the country (and the church) has seen various conquerors and religions leave their mark, the last being the Soviet-style government that only recently collapsed. The native art curator Gabriella Pecs brings British art historian Oliver Davenport to the church, suggesting that behind its walls is a painting that appears to be by Giotto.
