Absolution

At a Catholic public school, Benjamin Stanfield (DOMINIC GUARD) is tired of being the teacher's pet and decides to play a practical joke on his former master, Father Goddard (RICHARD BURTON). In confession, Stanfield tells Goddard that he accidentally murdered his friend and buried him in the forest. When Goddard investigates, he finds a buried scarecrow.
