A fledgling priest living in 1970s era London finds his commitment to the church tested by temptation in director Tom Waller's screen adaptation of author Piers Paul Reed's award-winning novel. Excommunicated by the church following a series of heated trysts with a single mother, a teenage sex kitten, and a sex-starved widow, Monk Dawson (John Michie) supports himself by working for a shady newspaper editor as he attempts to reconcile his spirituality with his all-consuming sexual appetite.
