Based upon a true story, Spotlight is the gripping story of how The Boston Globe's "Spotlight" team uncovered on of the most massive cover ups in recent history, the Massachusetts Catholic sex abuse scandal. Coverage of this story won The Globe the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service. The scandal involved the cover up of child molestation on a massive scale by those many in the community trusted most: their priest. The discovery of this cover up in the local Catholic Archdiocese rocked not only the community and families involved, but had far reaching effects for the Catholic church as a whole.
