Plot Summary

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

Quotes Peter Lavin: [addressing the boys in the middle of the night] There are... rumors being spread around by certain people! Anyone who is spreading these... rumors is a traitor to the orphanage, a traitor to you and a traitor to God. Whatever happens inside the walls of this orphanage is to STAY inside the walls of this orphanage! That is a sacred rule. A rule more sacred than any rule you will EVER HEAR! Understand this, there are people outside who want to see this orphanage close. These... rumors are the way to do it. If these... hellish fantasies are believed by the devils outside, people will stop donating money, people will stop donating clothing. You will be forced out into the street and you will have nowhere to go but into the GUTTER! If I hear, or hear of anyone will who is spreading these evil lies from hell or talking to anyone outside, I can assure you... by God... BY GOD! They will be punished.
