Pursuit Of Truth chronicles the struggles of adult survivors of child sex abuse who seek justice against their abusers. The film shines a bright light on the legal system’s shocking suppression of the rights of survivors to establish the truth behind their abuse. In their own words, survivors describe in moving and explicit terms their personal journeys to obtain justice and the obstacles that blocked their paths.
By presenting the survivors’ stories interwoven with the commentary of legal and social sciences experts, Pursuit Of Truth uncovers the pitfalls survivors encounter when they seek to lawfully confront their abusers. In doing so, the film raises serious questions about police procedures, prosecutorial charging decisions, defense lawyer tactics, and judicial responses to survivors’ claims.
Pursuit Of Truth realistically identifies the many barriers that survivors must overcome to obtain justice. But by portraying the courageous survivors who have beaten the odds and navigated the legal system successfully, the film also serves to encourage survivors to assert their legal rights forcefully.
Pursuit Of Truth has received a number of honors and wide acclaim for its piercing portrayal of survivors caught in a legal system in need of fundamental reform.
