Welcome to Mercy portrays an American single mother returning to Latvia to be with her dying father, only to be afflicted with visions and wounds similar to a Holy Stigmata. After she is transported to an isolated island convent to seek the help of a mysterious religious order, she discovers her affliction is not a gift from God, but something more sinister.
Directed by Tommy Bertelsen (Ed Wood), the film stars Kristen Ruhlin, Eileen Davies, Lily Newmark and Toms Liepajnieks.
Welcome to Mercy is produced by Granat, Darren Goldberg, Ed Jones, Joel Michaely, Max Pavlov, Yulia Zayceva, Serik Kushenov and Aslbek Mussin.
