Brief synopsis

Français :
Alexandre vit à Lyon avec sa femme et ses enfants. Un jour, il découvre par hasard que le prêtre qui a abusé de lui aux scouts officie toujours auprès d’enfants.
Il se lance alors dans un combat, très vite rejoint par François et Emmanuel, également victimes du prêtre, pour « libérer leur parole » sur ce qu’ils ont subi.
Mais les répercussions et conséquences de ces aveux ne laisseront personne indemne.
