Producer, Joan Sweeny: “This is a disturbing look at the emotional roller coaster ride of people who make a valiant fight against sex offenders who feel entitled by religious law to do whatever they want to in the name of God. At the heart of this picture is the message – join forces – takes a stand – you can make a difference.”
