Benjamin Stanfield (Dominic Guard) plays a practical joke on Father Goddard (Richard Burton). In confession, Stanfield tells Goddard that he has murdered his friend Blakey (Billy Connolly) and buried him in the forest. When Goddard investigates the matter, he finds a buried scarecrow. Goddard once again goes to the forest to investigate the matter. This time, he discovers Blakey's dead body.
