Netflix has unveiled the trailer for a new original seven-part docuseries, set to air May 19.

The Keepers follows a group of brave women seeking the truth about the murder of Catherine Cesnik — a Baltimore nun¬†that¬†vanished in 1969. Her body was found almost two months later and the murder remains unsolved to this day.

The series uncovers horrific secrets and pain that linger nearly five decades after her death.

“The story is not the nun’s killing,” says one character in the trailer. “The story is the cover up of the nun’s story.”

The series is directed by Ryan White (Serena, The Case Against 8). It was produced by Film 45 and Tripod Media for Netflix. Along with White and Jessica Hargrave, Josh Braun, Ben Cotner, Jason Spingarn-Koff and Lisa Nishimura are executive producers.
