THE CONFESSION

Directed by Thomas Hefferon
SHORT NARRATIVE 4 Minutes New York Premiere
FILM GUIDE THE CONFESSION

In 1970s Ireland, Johnny Smith, a seemingly innocent local boy, goes to church to confess his sins to the all-powerful town priest. With his friend standing by he nervously enters the confession box and begins a strange conversation with the priest, who seems more interested in gossiping about the nocturnal habits of the local women than granting him absolution from his sins. But everything is not as it seems.
