Bless Me, Ultima is a dramatic film that tells the story of Antonio. Antonio is growing up in New Mexico, just after World War II. He is very close to Ultima, a wise, elderly member of the community. Ultima was Antonio’s mother’s midwife when she gave birth to him, so Antonio’s whole family feels close to her. Antonio uses her as a mentor, and she teaches him a lot about life as he is growing up.

Antonio soon begins to learn that Ultima is more than just smart. She is a mystic, and she begins to teach Antonio about her spiritual abilities. One day, Antonio helps Ultima rid his uncle of demons. While he is learning these skills, Antonio begins to grow away from the Catholic faith much to the concern of his family. His mother has always wanted him to become a priest, but Antonio has begun to question the Church more and more. His father, on the other hand, wants Antonio to help him explore the west and perhaps find new land for the family to live on.

Antonio is preparing to take his First Communion in the Church, and that is when his doubts truly begin to surface. Antonio begins to believe that everything the Church stands for is simply ritual and his spiritual development will not take place. He begins to grow closer and closer to Ultima, desiring to follow her path and become one with nature. He begins to believe in a faith called “All is One” and finds himself to be united with everything around him. Antonio resolves his inner conflicts by forming his own religion. He takes a bit of Catholicism as well as a metaphysical beliefs of Native Americans, and he tells his father that he is following his own faith.
