How Rare a Possession is a 64-minute film produced by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church). It depicts the conversion stories of Parley P. Pratt, a church leader in the 19th century, and Vincenzo di Francesca, an Italian pastor in the 20th century, who both join the church after studying the Book of Mormon. It also shows several key scenes from the Book of Mormon.
In October 2017, it was reported that the LDS Church had acquired the handwritten testimony of Di Francesca, penned in 1966.
