After a long search for a job, a man succumbs to the unfortunate by packing to head back home where he opens up about his sexuality to his mother who accepts and supports him. On the contrary, his father; a chief priest at a local church with a reputation to maintain and flaws, executes everything in his power to denounce his son’s reality which subsequently lands him in prison.

Biblical connection

The biblical scripture of John 8:7 is the bases of the film Amen. In this scripture, a woman who was caught in the act of adultery was held captive by the scribes and the Pharisees and brought to Jesus who was at the temple compound of the sacred city. They then told the son of God the sin the woman had committed to which Jesus replied with the phrase “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone”. The connection between the film and the scripture is the alcoholic priest who judges his gay son immensely Themes: Hypocrisy Pursuit
