A confession breaking out with “I’m going to kill you”, a church set on fire and a fight in a pub — all falling within one week on Father James.
A confession breaking out with “I’m going to kill you”, a church set on fire and a fight in a pub — all falling within one week on Father James, a priest in a ward of a small country town in Ireland. All of a sudden, Father James becomes sentenced to his own Calvary, but by whom and what for? To be a pastor and to lead your flock is not that easy. One cannot go without humor, irony and forgiveness here.
