Father Goddard - God to his pupils - is an authoritarian priest who presides over a cloistered Catholic school for boys with tyrannical intensity. But when his favourite pupil strikes up a friendship with a pair of travelling drifters and he finds himself the butt of a series of disturbing pranks, Goddard begins to lose his grip over his young charges - and, perhaps, over reality itself.
