They escape, and the priest eventually finds the Jesuit mission on his own.

Jesus of Montreal (French: Jésus de Montréal) is a 1989 film by Quebec film director Denys Arcand. It is currently distributed in North America by Koch-Lorber FilmsThe film revolves around a group of actors in Montreal hired to present a passion play, with an actor named Daniel playing the role of Christ.

The actors then gather for the passion play, some of them leaving safe jobs to do so, recalling Jesus gathering the disciples....,
