Father Adam takes over a small parish in the middle of nowhere. He organizes a community centre for boys with troubled pasts. His energy appreciated, the locals accept him as one of their own.  Everybody wants to be close to him, feeding off of his vitality and power, but no one knows he harbors his own secret. After meeting an eccentric and silent young man, a local pariah, Father Adams is forced to confront a long forgotten burden and passion. As the villagers’ worst suspicions are validated, Father Adam becomes the obvious enemy.
