What dark secrets lurk beneath the scarlet robes?
Cardinal Sinne is in the process of packing his bags to fly to Rome and help elect the next Pope. However, before he can leave, he is confronted by a journalist with some awkward questions regarding his own past carnal conduct. Things are further complicated when a Vatican representative also arrives to investigate similar allegations and a lapsed priest appears threatening to reveal all and have him defrocked.
A religious romp presented in a mix of traditional comic farce, serious soliloquy and ludicrous litany, Cardinal Sinne will investigate the root and responsibility of institutions in their perpetuation of sexual inequality and bias.
