Denied is a psychological thriller about Cardinal Joseph Gallagher, a charismatic man with ruthless ambition and many secrets. When his shady past is uncovered against his will and the person he has hurt the most seeks revenge, he asks his lifelong friend, Dr. Jonathan Rogers for help. To Gallagher's mounting displeasure, Rogers demands that he publicly admit his greatest fear. Meanwhile in Rome, Bishop Peter Shuls, the Cardinal's mentor and a conniving insider, enlists the help of the evil organization, The Health Club, to ensure that his personal choice becomes the next leader of over one billion of the faithful. If the Cardinal refuses to unveil the untreated mental illness that has led to the death of the innocent, will Rogers become the next victim? But, if Gallagher agrees to disclose his darkest days, thereby upsetting the Bishop's plan, will anyone be able to stop The Health Club's chilling rampage to seize ultimate power?
