The three men, friends of childhood, will cross, compare their personal experiences and question their life of couple, family and professional. Alexandre lives in Lyon with his wife and children. One day he learns by chance that the priest who abused him when he was in scouts is still working with children. He decides to take action.
Francois Ozon's gripping drama follows three men who band together to dismantle the code of silence that continues to protect a priest who abused them decades ago. Based on events from the 2019 conviction of Cardinal Philippe Barbarin of Lyon for concealing the conduct of Father Bernard Preynat, BY THE GRACE OF GOD compassionately illustrates the varying effects of trauma on survivors and their families in this urgent portrait of resistance, the power of mobilization, and the mysteries of faith.
The movie depicting real-life events that were still on trial, Father Preynat with his lawers attempted without success to block its release in France, at least until the judgment and despite it's won Silver Bear at the Berlin Film Festival a few days prior. They invoked the fact that Father Preynat is presumed innocent until convicted. The court decided to allow the movie to be released, arguing the priest had already pleaded guilty.
To ‵‵lift the burden of silence′′ --- but the repercussions and consequences will leave no one unscathed.
