Movie Info

From master storyteller Arthur Haley comes this gripping tale of a man condemned to death, but determined to reveal the truth behind his crimes before his time expires. It's been a lifetime since former Catholic priest Malcolm Ainslie (Tom Beringer) walked away from the church to become a police investigator, and though he may have traded his collar for a badge the same man still exists deep inside despite the uniform change. It was Ainslie himself who played a key role in apprehending notorious serial killer Elroy Doil (Sean O'Bryan), and as the time draws near for Doil's execution, the convicted killer calls Ainslie to his cell for one final confession, and the promise of the truth. As Doil reveals to Ainslie the shocking details of the crimes he committed - and the terrifying truth behind one crime that not even Ainslie believed Doil capable of - the two men embark on a shocking journey into the past where no stone is left unturned, and the wrath of God weighs heavily on the shoulders of man.
