The year is 2001. Walter “Robby” Robinson leads the Boston Globe’s investigative unit, which includes Michael Rezendes, Sacha Pfeiffer, and Matt Carroll, in an inquiry regarding sexual abuse by the Catholic priests. They have their work cut out for them. Despite repeated allegations – decades worth – of misconduct against minors under its care, the Church has long made a habit of simply moving the accused priests from parish to parish rather than allowing them to face justice. As the Globe’s team finds layer after layer of cover-up, their investigation becomes a quest that goes on for months, pushing their psychological endurance to the limit.
