DELIVERED TO THE UK AND IRELAND ONLY. This is a PAL Region 2 DVD and may not work in DVD players outside of Europe. Set in contemporary Ireland, Conspiracy of Silence begins with two seemingly unrelated events: the suicide of beloved and well-respected Father Frank Sweeney, and the expulsion of a young seminary student, Daniel McLaughlin. When local investigative reporter, David Foley, aggressively pursues the two stories, he begins to uncover a shocking secret that links both incidents and leads directly to the highest ranks of the Catholic Church. Inspired by true events, Conspiracy of Silence is a provocative and timely drama that exposes the tragic impact of celibacy – an issue the Catholic Church remains reluctant to address.
