Egon (acted magnificently by Paul Arámbula), a sensitive, psychotic young man, ekes out an existence in a home with other addicts and people with mental impairments. A self-ordained priest promises him salvation through the Gospel, but Egon struggles to understand the Messiah. Until he starts to imitate him. With fatal consequences.
