The Quarry Ending
SPOILER ALERT The body of David killed by the man that was left in the quarry was discovered by Poco. He was suspicious of the new pries (the man) and as he and his brother Valentin stole the box of the man.
They found the blood-stained clothes and a violet flower that made them think that what was the priest doing in the quarry. Poco decided to find out more and he discovered the dead body which made them believe that the man has committed the crime and is now taking shelter under the guise of Pastor Martin. The police however suspected and believed that Valentin is the murderer as they found bloody clothes and weed from his trailer. Valentin did tell them the truth but they refused to believe him and the reason being that he was a man of color this made him an easier suspect and also, he did not have a good reputation.
This section of the film puts light on the mistreatment of non-whites. Valentin decided to confess and plans an escape from the court but gets wounded and founds himself the following morning in a boat with the priest, the man. The man who was filled with guilt confesses his crime and we are told the reason for his escape. He was escaping because he had killed his wife and her lover. We do not get to know who the man really is as he does not divulge his identity when asked by Valentin. Valentin then stabs the man because of whom he was being suspected of and succumbs to his injuries. In the meantime, the chief also finds proof about the Man and his suspicion and realizes that Valentin was not lying.
