The Master of Suspense, Alfred Hitchcock, directs screen legend Montgomery Clift in this thriller about a priest who hears a murderer's confession and ends up implicating himself in the crime.
In the confessional of a small Quebec parish, Father Michael Logan hears the church sexton whisper: "I killed a man." Father Logan's vows prevent him from breaking the sanctity of the confessional and allows the killer to go free. But as the police investigate the murder, all the evidence points to Father Logan.
Now, in order to remain true to his vows, Father Logan will be forever discredited and possibly convicted for murder.
