Father Tim Farley, a popular, gregarious priest of a prosperous Catholic congregation, has his well-ordered world turned upside down by the arrival of Mark Dolan, a fiery, idealistic young seminarian. Mark challenges both Fr. Farley’s humorous sermons and some long held traditions of the Church leading to a conflict that raises difficult questions for both men: What is the price of honesty? How far do ends justify means? A close and oftentimes comedic friendship develops between the two, and when Mark faces a personal crisis at the seminary, Father Farley is forced to make a choice that will forever alter both their futures.
“A tender comedy about the meaning and power of both secular and religious love.” — The New York Times
