“The Confession” by John LaRaw from South Korea was the Winner of Best Short Film at the International Catholic Film Festival.
“The Confession” tells the story of a young priest who listens as an elderly man confesses to the sin of a murder he committed twenty years ago. The man is riddled with guilt and visibly pained by the choice he made to flee the scene and avoid the police. As the details of the man’s crime continue to unfold, the priest suddenly realizes that he has a very personal connection to the story.
There is an incredible and unexpected twist in the plot as we watch the priest physically, emotionally, and spiritually struggle with how to handle the elderly man’s request for the forgiveness of his sins. Will the priest respond in anger or mercy?
