An engrossing and topical examination of the Catholic Church abuse scandal, telling the story of three men pursuing justice for the abuse they suffered as children.

‘By the Grace of God zips through the facts of this horrid case, while also shaping them into a lens through which to examine the uneasy relationships between mercy and justice’ ★★★★ David Ehrlich, IndieWire
