Phil Jacobs, editor of the Washington Jewish Post, has begun writing and publishing a series of articles about sexual abuse in the Orthodox Jewish community. He has found what he believes to be clear evidence that several respected rabbis have been able to avoid arrest and recrimination due to the control they wield over the community.

Fear blankets the orthodox community, creating an impenetrable wall of silence impossible to break through. Jacobs fights the orthodox establishment to bring to light the pain and suffering of hundreds of survivors. At the same time he reveals a deep, personal truth which takes the story to a remarkable climax.
