Contrition is a short film of the Crime-Noir genre. This film follows one young Catholic Priest, Father Michael Rodriguez. Michael stumbles across an attempted rape during a late night stroll through an Inner City. When Michael confronts the attacker, he accidentally kills the man. Later, he collides with the Victim he saved, only to be pulled further into her own underbelly of crime. Michael's past in the United States Army makes him the perfect protector, but this past causes him to butt heads with another Priest at his Church, Father Brenden, an Ex-IRA member from Ireland. Brendan has lost Faith in this hopeless American Community, so far away from his homeland.
