Three people are locked in a Catholic church for the night. Harry, the English-born Jew and ex-circus strongman, is praying to the flickering candle in the Sanctuary Lamp for the strength to kill his wife and best friend. Maudie, the 16-year-old runaway waif is haunted by her past and waiting for the release of forgiveness. And there’s the Irish blackguard Francisco, who doesn’t want anything.
