Plot

The Club (2015 film) movie scenes

Four retired Catholic priests share a secluded house in the outskirts of a small Chilean beach town, under a vigilant female caretaker who used to be a nun. The four men are there to discreetly purge their sins and crimes (child abuse, baby-snatching for adoptions, whistleblower, etc.). They are not permitted to mingle with the townsfolk and are only allowed to be out during early morning and late night. Their only hobby is breeding a race dog and entering into competitions. This changes for them when a new priest arrives and a victim of his child abuse follows him. This results in the priest committing suicide. Subsequently a new spiritual director arrives and their life and their routine is disrupted.
