Father James is a widower. He joined the Catholic Church late in life and is a good man, quietly trying to make the world around him a better place - despite the often spiteful attitudes of people in his tiny Irish parish. When his life is threatened during confession, his attempts to focus on the emotional ailments of his daughter and reach out to those in the community become increasingly difficult, as dark forces close in around him. This engrossing, often startling drama asks some profound questions about the modern world as well as being a thoughtful, sensitive, darkly funny character study.
Contains very strong language, strong sex references and scenes of bloody violence. This film also contains references to suicide and occasional portrayals of hard and soft drug use.
