This documentary displays the lives of the Latinos of the Southwestern United States who have developed markedly different rituals from other Latino Catholics. The video shows the use of certain charms and amulets that distinguish them from their peers. Only recently has it been discovered that these Catholics come from a line of Jews who were threatened with expulsion from Spain in 1492. Rather than face losing their lives, those Jews chose to convert to Catholicism. Acts of Faith: Jewish Civilization in Spain examines this group, whose religion is a curious mixture of Judaism and Catholicism which endures despite having lost most of the physical proof of their origin.
