AS TENTAÇÕES DO IRMÃO SEBASTIÃO (Die Versuchungen des Bruders Sebastian)

In 2030 the planet is devastated by war and pollution. Brother Sebastian, a novice in a congregation whose rules syncretise the Christianity of martyrdom and the messianic beliefs of Northeastern Brazil, is preparing his ordination. But he is haunted by doubt, the shame of having been sexually abused as a child, and his guilty desire for an androgynous friar. He confesses himself to Father Sanctus, the founder of the order, whom he considers his saviour.
