Living in exile in La Boca, Chile, four disgraced priests and a nun (Antonia Zegers), suspected of crimes ranging from child abuse to baby-snatching from unwed mothers, receive a visit from a clerical counselor (Marcelo Alonso).
Larrain makes all of his damaged characters somewhat likable and sympathetic (although the likability dims toward the end). Which only makes this meditation on mercy, forgiveness and twisted raw power more disturbing.
Larrain consciously took on the difficult, complicated themes of faith, truth and guilt here, a commendable task considering that avoiding the topic has been part of why it has escaped confrontation for so long.
