Storyline

This movie is based on actual events, but it says it is not all about one specific incident. It documents St. Vincent's Orphanage in Canada, where many of the boys suffer physical, emotional, and sexual abuse at the hands of the brothers who run the facility. When the stories are surfaced and a police investigation is begun, religious and political groups work to silence the story to keep it from reaching the public. Written by mike407

One of the best TV productions ever made, a brilliant, highly sensitive, absorbing, deeply disturbing, excellently directed and superbly acted drama with a outstanding turn by Henry Czerny in the lead. A modern classic, falls short of masterpiece.
