Based on the Short Story by Anthony DiFranco. In 1944, a priest in an Italian village is paralyzed by fear when his town is occupied by the Germans. He is sustained by his friendship with a woman, a member of the Resistance, who is captured while taking a message to the USA army--a mission the cleric was too cowardly to complete. As her execution nears, the clergyman is called to hear her final confession.
