Living with his wife and children in Lyon, Alexandre (Melvil Poupaud) has long kept the abuse he suffered at the hands of his childhood Catholic priest secret. Discovering that his abuser is still employed and working with children within the Church, Alexandre begins to find fellow victims of the highly respected clergyman, and together they set out to break the code of silence that has kept the priest in his position for decades. Based on the real case that would result in the charging of Father Bernard Preynat with the assault of over 70 children, François Ozon’s (FRANTZ, HIFF 2016) latest film is an incisive investigation into the ongoing fight for justice and accountability within the Catholic Church.
