What would you do when innocence is betrayed?
After a childhood of abuse and destructive behavior, David Cooper's life is changed by a tragic event, one that compels him to become a priest. After being ordained, he returns to his hometown to face those who do not easily forgive his past - and those who do not trust or believe in him. Motivated by an honest desire to help others and by his own past hurts, Father David is drawn to the children who desperately seek the love and approval of adults but have only found betrayal. He befriends Corey Hansen, a young boy who reminds Father David of himself as a child. Ultimately, the boy's troubles will lead Father David into an uncertain but relentless search to find and expose the person responsible for one of societies most appalling evils - the sexual abuse of a child.
