An altar boy is accused of murdering a priest, and the truth is buried several layers deep.

Synopsis

Sooner or later, a man who wears two faces forgets which one is real.

An arrogant, high-powered attorney takes on the case of a poor altar boy found running away from the scene of the grisly murder of the bishop who has taken him in. The case gets a lot more complex when the accused reveals that there may or may not have been a 3rd person in the room. The intensity builds when a surprise twist alters everyone's perception of the crime.
