Detective Koznicki (Josef Sommer, Witness) desperately needs the priests help, but Koesler is tied to his sacred vows and hampered by the blustery, hardline Father Ted Nabors (Charles Durning, True Confessions). Now, Father Koesler and Lieutenant Koznicki must frantically work against time to save the next victim, catch the killer and stop The Rosary Murders. Also starring Belinda Bauer (Robocop 2) with a screenplay by the great, Elmore Leonard (52 Pick-up) and the films director Fred Walton (When a Stranger Calls, April Fools Day).
