Overview

Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker Alex Gibney (Taxi to the Dark Side, Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Eliot Spitzer) investigates a shocking tale of clerical sexual abuse in a Catholic school for deaf children, and exposes the conspiracy of silence within the Vatican to protect the offending priest from being prosecuted for his heinous crimes. As four former abuse victims summon the courage to speak out about the sexual crimes perpetrated against them by the very priest to whom they confessed their sins, we are presented with the facts of the official investigation, and learn how all allegations of pedophilia within the church ended up being overseen by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger (now Pope Benedict XVI), who continually acted to protect the Catholic church rather than the innocents whose lives were being destroyed by its clerics.
