Music for the film was composed through the joint efforts of Mark Mancina and Adrian Lee. The plot of the film revolves around a young priest (Bettany) who suffers from guilt both sexual and religious after being caught in a affair with a member of his congregation. He flees his home due to persecution and joins up with a traveling troupe of actors who perform morality plays. They shortly arrive in a strange town with a half finished castle where a woman is being tried for the murder of a young boy. But the more the priest looks into the matter the more innocent she seems and the more his troupe wishes he would let well enough alone.
