Chilean drama from film-maker Pablo Larrain, set in a small coastal town. Four aged Catholic priests live in exile under the watchful eye of a nun, Sister Monica (Antonia Zegers). Father Vidal (Alfredo Castro), Father Ortega (Alejandro Goic), Father Silva (Jaime Vadell) and Father Ramirez (Alejandro Sieveking) are here to serve time repenting an array of indecent acts from child abuse to abducting children. The arrival of a fifth disgraced priest, Father Lazcano (Jose Soza), disrupts the idyllic retreat. Local fisherman Sandokan (Roberto Farias), who suffered at the hands of Lazcano, recognises him and informs the rest of the unsuspecting village. The aggression and violence this causes necessitates the dispatching of a crisis counsellor, Father Garcia (Marcelo Alonso).
