In what was one of the most eagerly-awaited docs to premiere at last year’s edition of the Toronto International Film Festival, Alex Gibney (Taxi to the Dark Side) trains an eye on the issue of sexual abuse in the Roman Catholic Church. With a focus on the story of four deaf men who launched the first known public protest against clerical sex abuse in the U.S., this riveting expose unveils both the horrors experienced by these men and others at the hands of those they trusted to guide and protect them, and the strength of spirit that drove them to make themselves heard.
