A can of worms is opened within the Irish Catholic Church following two controversial incidents, the suicide of a parish priest, Frank Sweeney (Patrick Casey), and the expulsion of Daniel McLaughlin (Jonathan Forbes), a young trainee priest from a nearby seminary, on the grounds that he was open to the sexual advances of a male colleague. A local journalist, David Foley (Jason Barry), is convinced that Sweeney's death and Daniel's expulsion are linked.

Desperate to clear his good name and be re-instated, Daniel agrees to talk to Foley. As Foley's story gathers momentum, the Church closes ranks.
