    • Synopsis
    • Faith is based on the New York Times-bestselling novel by Jennifer Haigh. In the spring of 2002, scandal rips through the Boston Archdiocese: trusted priests have been accused of the worst possible betrayal of the souls in their care. When Sheila McGann learns that her brother Art — the popular, dynamic pastor of a large suburban parish — has been accused of molesting a boy, she returns to Boston, ready to fight for him and his reputation. She finds her pious, lace-curtain Irish mother in a state of angry denial; while her younger brother Mike, to her horror, is convinced of Art’s guilt. Most disturbing of all is Art himself, who persistently dodges Sheila’s questions and refuses to defend himself. Faith explores the corrosive consequences of one family’s history of silence.
