In the fall of 1952, Bishop Bilodeau is called to hear an ageing prisoner’s confession. The prisoner, Simon Doucet, recounts a story about three teenaged boys in 1912. When he reveals the names of the boys the bishop recognises his own story and begins to fear for his life. Simon forces the bishop to watch as other prisoners perform a play about the forty-year-old events. The play explores the repressed passion that binds - and eventually separates - the three boys in a web of desire and jealousy. As he watches the play unfold, the bishop begins to hallucinate. At the end of the play, Simon confronts Bilodeau, asking him to confess his guilt for a crime which resulted in Simon’s life imprisonment.
