Justice can be telling...

Stephen Roche

The real Australian story that changed the way we protect our children and was a catalyst that ultimately led to a Royal Commission into Institutional Child Sexual Abuse.

Desperate to be believed and tormented by memories of sexual abuse as a 12-year-old boarder at a prestigious Australian school, Lyndal’s last hope is to take on the justice system.

Estranged from her family with a small window of opportunity to be heard by the courts, she returns to the country town that plagued her mind for the first time in 11 years.

Lyndal entrusts local lawyer Stephen Roche who recognises she is at breaking point and sets out to expose the secret sex scandal taking place in a local school. With the help of bright-eyed young associate Jodie Collins and the enigmatic barrister Bob Myers,  Lyndal sets out on the fight of a lifetime.

At its heart, Don’t Tell is a true story about a young girl and an Aussie lawyer who discover the courage to speak up and take on the Anglican Church.
