Storyline

Cops find themselves dealing with a string of homicides with a twist, each victim was given the last rites, this leaves local priest Father Thomas Cusack to startlingly conclude that it can only be the work of someone linked to the church. When the suspect begins confessing his sins to Thomas, he knows it must be a seminar student who's suffered a severe crisis of faith. Unable to aid the police due to his oaths, he decides to do what he can to understand why this would-be man of the cloth has become so twisted. Written by ???

Father Cusack seems to have uncovered a mystery, but is torn by his devotion to his faith. Meanwhile, detectives look to shed some light on the the same mystery.
2 June 2005 | by MaxSee all my reviews

I have never seen a role more appropriate than this one for Christopher Reeve. It seems as though he was born to play Father Cusack. He delivers a powerful performance in this testimonial. Also, Greg Martinelli and Dennis Paoli offer a gripping story full of plot twists and turns that leave you reeling. The dialogue is flavorful and fresh, reminding viewers of the reality and humanity of the characters. With outstanding plot devices and symbolism, these writers really make life easy for Reeve, Guinan, McMillan, and Allen. The brilliantly crafted screenplay and top notch showings of the aforementioned more than make up for a lackluster if not stolid acting performance by Roxann Dawson, or Roxann Biggs, or whatever she goes by these days. Still, she finds herself unable to bring down this pearl amongst clam shells in a saturated film market. Bravo, and I can't wait for the next collaboration from Martinelli and Paoli.
