The Fugitive - Plot - Netflix
A nameless and conflicted Catholic priest is a fugitive in the Mexican state of Tabasco where religion is outlawed. Another fugitive, a murderous bandit dubbed “El Gringo”, comes to town. He and a beautiful Indian woman conspire to help the priest escape. Taken to safety, the priest is then convinced by a police informant to return to the town on the pretense that “El Gringo” is dying and wishes to receive the last rites. The priest is captured and sentenced to death, but forgives the informant for betraying him. The priest's execution by firing squad brings an outpouring of public grief and shows the authorities that it is impossible to stamp out religion as long as it exists in people's hearts and minds.
