Synopsis by Rovi
Writer-director François Ozon’s searing psychological drama is based on the case of Father Bernard Preynat – the man responsible for France’s most notorious church sex abuse scandal to date. In present-day Lyon, a married man’s memories of being sexually abused when he was a boy scout awakens when he realises that the priest responsible for them continues to work with children. He makes connections with other victims to pressure the church to come to terms with its complicity.
