Synopsis/Details: 

Dwight Plickens is a simple southern man. He likes his beer. He likes his card nights. And he don't care much for his wife and son. Once a year, as his form of atonement to demonstrate to a higher power, if there is one, Dwight forces his family to don their Sunday best and confess one sin. Well, this Confession Day, Dwight's 10-year-old son Tate takes matters into his own hands. This will be the last confession he ever gives. And the last confession Dwight Plickens ever hears.
