Synopsis
Set in modern day Ireland, the story begins with two seemingly unrelated events--the unexpected suicide of beloved and well-respected priest, Father Frank Sweeny, and the expulsion of idealistic, young Seminary student, Daniel McLaughlin. Local investigative reporter, David Foley, aggressively pursues the two stories and begins to uncover a deadly secret that links both incidents and leads directly up to the highest ranks of the Church. His suspicions are confirmed when he receives anonymous threats and is chased by mysterious and shadowy figures. As he digs deeper he unwillingly puts his and his young family's lives in grave danger. Meanwhile, Daniel is forced to make a decision that could haunt him forever--will he return to the Church and help cover-up its lies and deceit, or will he surrender all dreams of becoming a priest and return to the beautiful girl he left behind.
