Overview

A callous young priest charged with closing down a small-town parish finds his mission unexpectedly interrupted by compassion and human kindness in writer/director/star David Wall's introspective religious drama. Father Jonathan Keene Wall is a kind of holy hitman, a priest who travels the country closing down parishes that aren't considered economically viable by the archdioceses. When Father Keene first arrives in a remote village on a mission to shut down the Sacred Heart Chapel, he's simply concerned with getting the job done and moving along; human connections only serve to complicate matters. But before long, something unusual begins to happen -- not only does Father Keene begin to take interest in the town's beautiful librarian, but he enters into a series of weighty discussions with the priest he was sent to displace as well. Now, as the domineering Mrs. Worthington prepares to throw her annual holiday party that's always the talk of the town, a powerful but conflicted man of the cloth will finally take the pause needed to reflect on his true role in the church and spiritual commitment to the people.

    Wooden Performances

    Unfortunately, this is one of the worst movies I've ever seen, regardless of the pro-life message. The acting is so bad--so wooden--it was truly unbelievable--zero chemistry between the actors. I'm still shaking my head in disbelief--not one believable character. A real disappointment. Rent before you buy this one.

    Overlooked but sweet and funny movie

    Hardly anyone saw this movie when it was in the theatres which is a shame. I thought it was enjoyable and well-made, with an interesting story and characters and funny parts too. This movie is well-worth watching.
