Congregation of Ghosts

Synopsis

After years in India, working as a missionary, Reverend Densham returns to England to take up the post of vicar in the remote and insular Cornish village of Warleggan on Bodmin Moor. Influenced by the Indian culture, and in particular the work of Gandhi, Densham tries to spread the word to a prejudiced, uneducated and fiercely traditional community. The result is a clash of understanding which leads to a bizarre and tragic series of events and ultimately totals ostracism of Densham from the community.
