For decades Father John Goeghan raped and sexually abused countless children in his church. But more concerned about saving face than protecting the victims, the Boston archdiocese simply moved him from one parish to another. Until a handful of Boston Globe journalists broke the story. It was just the tip of the iceberg. This is the story of the evil they uncovered. It knows no geographical bounds. It is a story of lost  faith, lost innocence and lost purity which ultimately turned into a crisis for the Catholic church.

As Andrei is drawn into the life and fate of his patient, he realizes that the lives of his own family also hang in the balance.
