Synopsis Martin Scorsese finally realises his long-held dream to direct SILENCE, an
adaptation of the Shusaku Endo novel about 17th century Jesuits who risk their
lives to bring Christianity to Japan.
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 God.
