Plot Synopsis:

Depicting the power struggles and political intrigue within the 16th century Italian court, The Cardinal stars Matheson Lang (Drake the Pirate) as Cardinal Giovanni de’ Medici, confessor and co-ruler of Florence.
 
When the Cardinal’s brother, Giuliano (Eric Portman, One of Our Aircraft Is Missing) is wrongfully accused of murder, the Cardinal is unable to use what has transpired during confession, information that would set his brother free. Faced with a crisis of conscience and an obligation to church doctrine, the Cardinal is torn between his faith and his family.
