Summary
Following World War II, an unnamed Cardinal is arrested as a traitor to an unspecified Eastern European country. While imprisoned, the Cardinal is put through a series of trials by a state interrogator charged with convincing the Cardinal to issue a phony statement that would effectively end Catholicism in the country. Purportedly based on the real-life travails of Hungarian Cardinal József Mindszenty
