Sometime silence is the deadliest sound

It is 1640 and Father Sebastian Rodrigues (Andrew Garfield), an idealistic Jesuit priest, sets sale for Japan determined to help the brutally oppressed Christians there. He is also desperate to discover the truth about his former mentor, rumoured to have renounced his faith under torture. Rodrigues cannot believe the stories about a man he so revered, but as his journey takes him deeper into Japan and then into the hands of those who would crush his faith, he finds himself forced to make an impossible choice: whether to abandon his flock or his religion. Based on the novel by Shusaku Endo.
