Father Gregory Lind (Robert Forster) is the Catholic priest who questions his dedication to his parishioners.
He becomes disenchanted with the church over the official stance on birth control, unwanted pregnancy and social change.
He tries to confide in his family but they rebuke him for questioning his faith.

He is beaten up by street thugs who believe he is gay.
Gregory considers leaving the church for a new life with the woman he loves.
The story for this romantic melodrama is taken from the novel "The Wine And The Music" by William E. Barrett.
The German title for this movie became "Geliebte des Priesters".
Little boy lost
In search of little boy found
You go a wondering, wandering, stumbling, tumbling
When will you find
What's on the tip of your mind
Why are you blind
To all you ever would
Little boy false
In search of little boy true
Will you be ever done
You ... you
Could lead you farther astray
And as for fishing in streams
For pieces of dreams
Those pieces will never fit
What is the sense of it
Little boy blue
Don't let your little sheep roam
It's time come blow your horn
Meet the morn
Look and see
Can you be
Far from home?
