This documentary presents the story of two brothers, now young adults, who are seeking to confront the priest who abused them in their childhood, Arkadiusz Hajdasz, and bring him to justice. As they chase leads, they discover more of his victims, yet meet with a lack of compassion or understanding from the church. They also aim to bring to account those in the church hierarchy who hid the priest’s crimes and did not report the priest to Vatican authorities as is required by church law.
