Synopsis

Set in a men's prison in 1952 Quebec, a bishop is brought to hear the confession of an important hardened criminal. Locked in the confessional by the man's fellow inmates, the bishop finds himself forced to watch the peformance in the prison chapel of scenes from the homoerotic play, 'The Death of St. Sebastian". The play becomes a link to scenes from the men's past in 1912 northern Quebec, in which bishop and criminal were close boyhood friends.
