Father Pete Madsen is a man torn by conscience. Ever since the Civil War, he has devoted his life to the church in an attempt to do penance for his bloody deeds of heroism, with his faith as his only weapon against the evils of the world. He thought there was no way that faith could be shaken, because in his life to this point it had held firm. However, it's tested once more when his best friend is killed, and the murdered man's daughter seeks vengeance on her own. Now Father Pete will have to put aside the cloth, his faith, and his conscience to save her, at the risk of his life...and his soul.
