All three of them were priests. And they all had their lapses, to put it politely. A Polish blockbuster about hypocrisy in the Catholic Church. 

Three priests gather at the parish to drink on the anniversary of a tragedy they survived. The scheming Leszek dreams of a career in the Vatican. The alcoholic Tadeusz leads a rural parish, where he has time for philandering. News that the third priest, Andrzej, has been accused of sexually abusing a young boy sours the mood. Played by among the most famous Polish actors.
