Employing an impressionistic filmmaking style, director Joe Cultrera explores the effects of one of the many sexual-abuse cases that has plagued the Boston Archdiocese in this documentary centering on Cultrera's brother Paul. Haunted for decades by memories of the abuse suffered at the hands of his priest, Paul kept the ordeal a secret until he was 53. Upon revealing what he'd been through to his family, he subsequently made the shocking discovery that the same priest had been accused by several others, but was promoted by the church multiple times without punishment.
