Israel, an adored pastor from rural Georgia, lives a peaceful and fulfilling life. Yet, when he begins to suffer disturbing nightmares, he is brought nearly to the brink.

Shortly after he returns home, Israel is visited by a sinister figure that asks only one thing from him: "Confess your sins."
Amidst his darkest hours, the very foundations of Israel's faith are shaken, and all that he holds dear begins to wane in the doubt that plagues his mind.
