The Confession of a Paedophile Priest
An alcoholic journalist, unemployed and with a failed marriage behind him,sets out to track down an Irish priest accused of child abuse in an orphanage.
What starts as an attempt to resurrect his career, quickly becomes an obsession. The more he learns, the more he hates the priest. But only for the child abuse, or also for the journalist's own memories of his Catholic upbringing?
As his emotions become more extreme, he is forced to examine his motives and his own sense of guilt.If he can forgive himself, can he forgive the priest too, before tragedy strikes?
This is a haunting story of a journey to the heart of darkness, where secrets and long-buried memories break to the surface and set passions running high.
