Child abuse within the Catholic Church has been a taboo subject for far too long, with senior church officials choosing to keep it hidden. In pursuit of justice, the victims of child abuse had to take matters into their own hands, united under the mission of uncovering the truth behind the Church’s inactivity. This powerful story is captured in the riveting documentary that centers around Matthias Katsch, a prominent representative of victims in Germany, and filmmaker Eva Müller.
The “Squared Table” victims’ initiative, spearheaded by Katsch himself, was instrumental in uncovering the abuse scandal in the Catholic Church in Germany in 2010. This meant that for over thirty years, the crimes of his abusers remained covered up. With the Church taking no significant action, Katsch grew impatient and decided to travel to Chile to find the abusers and ensure that justice is served. In this gripping and emotional documentary, one can see their journey of dedication, persistence, and ultimately hope, as they seek to bring the abusers to light and prevent future atrocities from happening.
