In this drama, a young priest (Timothy Peach) and his pretty parishioner (Heike Falkenberg) are busily engaged in a love affair. They are unconcerned about the spiritual consequences of their actions, and are chiefly interested in remaining undiscovered. When the girl discovers that she is pregnant, she becomes bitterly preachy on the subject of obligatory priestly celibacy. Meanwhile, the priest is jumping at shadows: on one occasion, when a sweet old lady parishioner gives him what looks like a baby jacket, he nearly faints dead away, until he discovers that it's intended to cover a hot water bottle. Eventually his bishop and his best friend, a Jesuit, discover what has been going on. To his amazement, both men are unsurprised, and view the situation quite calmly.
