How can 500+ underage girls keep the same secret from adults?
27 June 2020 | by nahumthebestSee all my reviews

This was a good documentary but I feel it was done in a very basic way. It is hard to describe.

It is horrible what happened. The corruption is unimaginable. What transpired over 29 years - it is impossible to fathom how that was possible.

The story is absolutely unbelievable, unimaginable, and impossible to make up.

Conclusion: definitely worth watching and recommending.

9/10 - good documentary; recommend it.
