A riveting and unflinching account of a survivor of clergy sexual abuse and his civil lawyer as they seek justice by taking on the Catholic Church.
Widespread sexual abuse within the Church has traumatized thousands. Many have only recently come forward, while others have been silenced through settlements. In Prey, a public trial forces the dark and hidden story of clergy sexual abuse to light.
The plaintiff was abused for years as a boy at the hands of a Catholic priest. His civil lawyer is nicknamed ''the priest hunter''. The defendants are The Basilians, a Catholic religious order. The abuser appears in court via a haunting video deposition taken before his death — a confession sealed from public view until now.
The trial is about how much money the church must pay in compensation for the devastating fallout from the abuse. But more importantly, it is about exposing the truth of how and why the abuse of children can have gone on for so long without the Church stopping it.
