Description

In 1912, two young boys in a Catholic college fall in love while working on a play about St. Sebastian. Their passion ends in tragedy with one boy sent to prison, the other dead. Years later, as the aged inmate is about to be released, he is visited by the local monsignor, who as a boy was party to the tragic events. The inmate re-stages the entire story as a play, forcing the monsignor to admit his role in the tragedy.
