In 2001, editor Marty Baron of The Boston Globe assigns a team of journalists to investigate allegations against John Geoghan, an unfrocked priest accused of molesting more than 80 boys.

The reporters make it their mission to provide proof of a cover-up of sexual abuse within the Roman Catholic Church.
