SYNOPSIS

It's the 8th Century in the courts of the Vatican Judiciary. Faithful attendant to the Pope, Bastiano di Bologna, has been summoned to stand trial on several counts, including the attempted murder of His Holiness! Bastiano admits to having sneaked into the holy bed chambers, but insists that his objective was not to commit a crime! Bastiano woefully recounts how earlier that day, he witnessed something so shocking - so devastatingly unsettling - he had no choice but to verify his nightmarish vision, whatever the cost!
