By The Grace Of The God (15)

Alexandre lives with his wife and children in Lyon. One day he discovers by chance that the priest that abused him when he was a boy scout is still working with young people.

Distraught, Alexandre finally finds the courage to take action against the man. Based on the real-life case of Father Bernard Preynat, Ozon sensitively portrays the victims and reveals the lifelong wounds they have sustained while critiquing the church’s silence on paedophilia and asks questions about its complicity.
