I saw the original (part1 Boy of St Vincent) which depicted the crimes within the trusted Catholic orphanage in Newfoundland, CAN during one small window of its 100 year history. Fortunately, I watched the sanitized version on PBS, else the raw version contains stuff no survivor ought to see (according to ample reviews).
Part 2 focused on the adult survivors and the criminal prosecution of perpetrators. It also covers the neglect of overriding authorities, the "don't give a sht" officials and the intentional cover-up devils. ALL of whom had been told in NO uncertain terms what was happening in St Vincents.
Though the disclaimer positions the film as non-related to actual events, its a duplication of events and an actual large-scale CSA case.
It depicts the pure freakin hell our post-abuse, adult lives can and will be. That is a much easier sentence to read than to write. Watching your own PTSD traits on screen, well-acted and produced, is absolutely horrible.
If you ever watch it...eh...don't watch it. Show it to the "Just Get Over It" people in your lives.
