The Monster of Jerusalem

The Monster of Jerusalem

In the picturesque alleys of the ultra-Orthodox Nachlaot neighborhood in Jerusalem, a mother discovers a bite on her son’s penis. Two weeks later, 14, then 100, and finally 145 children from the crowded neighborhood tell of shocking sexual assaults on a network of pedophiles that leads children through tunnels to churches, where they are harmed, as the perpetrators  also try to convert their religion.

But the film investigates both sides of the story, to reveal this might be some sort of witch hunt that even led to murder.
