ex-Vietnam vet/priest is left with a confession from his dying best friend that
there is a conspiracy within the church. He begins questioning himself ... "Could the church be hiding something
from him, a man of the cloth even?"... wanting to find the truth behind
his friend's death he soon finds himself in a world of trouble, especially
after a mysterious femme fatale shows up, Angelica... and she's no angel, testing no only his faith,
but tempts him with forbidden fruit as well....
Get ready for dirty hoes and fallen priests!
An ex-Vietnam vet takes up religion to try and find some peace after the
war, but when he hears his war buddy's dying confession he is left with no
answers and only more questions, not to mention he begins having flashbacks of
the war as well. His soul becomes even
more tainted when a mysterious beauty shows up tempting with not only truth
behind his friend's death but his carnal desires as well. As he searches for clues with this mysterious
girl, he is soon drawn into a world filled with vice, sex, drugs, and violence.
If you are looking for heroes or any stories with morals you won't find any
here, but what you will find is one traumatized priest with loose morals. As the main character delves deeper in he get
involved with drugs and sex, (which doesn't help his flashbacks) his flashbacks
of the war are almost a parallel of how his priesthood is in danger. The film looks like if it was recorded off a
VHS, the sound was not too good quality either, and at most the special
effects did was some slow motion during fights scenes and fast motion during
drug trip scenes. No extras included,
which is no surprise.
