Based on a true story, this powerful, quietly polemical drama explores both the enduring consequences of child abuse and the complacent complicity of the Catholic church.

When Alexandre learns that the priest who abused him decades ago still works with young people, he tells his family what happened and seeks out other victims so that the Church will take action. Even as others are persuaded to speak out, however, the Catholic establishment starts dragging its feet.

In French with English subtitles.
