Peter Wright, an 83 year old former headmaster of posh prep school Caldicott, located in southern Buckinghamshire, England was convicted of 12 offences against five children who studied there. The assaults happened between the years of 1959 and 1970, as a result of pleading guilty Wright was sentenced to 8 years.

This BAFTA award winning film primarily focuses on the assaults which occurred at Caldicott during this period but it also examines the rarely spoken about abuse of boys by teachers seen nationwide in Britain’s private schools.

For 30 years the men featured in this film remained silent about the events which altered their lives forever but here, through various interviews we see them break this silence with breathtaking honesty.
