Synopsis

Academy Award-winning documentarian Alex Gibney directs this film which explores the scandals, cover ups and dark history of the Catholic Church. With a focus on the accusations of child molestation which have haunted the clergy for many years, the film gives a broad outline of the abuse that many have suffered at the hands of those deemed the holiest of men. As well as looking at the specifics of a particular case with the cooperation of the victims themselves, it makes claims that suggest a widespread and endemic negligence within the upper echelons of the Church.
