Venturing into some of the roughest slums of St. Louis, Jesuit priest Rev. Charles Dismas Clark (Don Murray) dedicates himself to helping young ex-convicts who are struggling to rejoin a society that fears and rejects them. An especially wrenching case for the Reverend is Billy Lee Jackson (Keir Dullea), a troubled thief whose personal demons constantly tempt him back to a life of crime -- and may ultimately make him pay the highest price for a few desperate decisions.
Director: Irvin Kershner
