    Survivors Rowe documents the tragic stories of three men who were victims of Ralph Rowe, an Anglican priest who molested over 500 children, and the courageous journey they undertake to arrive at a place of healing and forgiveness.

    For almost two decades, Rowe sexually abused First Nation boys in the north during his days as an Anglican minister. Joshua Frogg, John Fox, and Ralph Winter, all from northwestern Ontario, bravely share the pain and turmoil they endured, and how they arrived at a place of peace and healing. By telling their story, this film continues to play a role in the healing process of First Nations sex abuse survivors.
