Synopsis

Upon arriving at his new Liverpool parish, Father Greg is shocked to learn that his elder colleague ignores celibacy and sleeps with his housekeeper. Greg chooses to satisfy his earthly desires in a more secretive way - picking up guys at the local gay pub. Tortured with his own moral dilemma, he is hit with another, when a young girl confesses that she is being sexually abused by her father. The priest is soon torn between the laws of the church and his need to choose one life over another.
