Parallel threads of three men, Alexandre, François and Gille, completely different from each other. However, they have something in common – they were sexual abused as boys by the same clergyman, Father Bertrand Preynat. Already as adults, they face a painful past and wounds on the psyche. Perception of the film it is even more difficult when one remembers that it is based on authentic events and – later – the unequal struggle that Preynat's victims had with the bishop of the Lyon diocese.
