Witch Hunt: An incredibly moving documentary executive produced and narrated by Sean Penn, but Sean’s voice quickly fades into the background as you listen to these seriously outrageous stories. This is the horrifying true account of the wrongful conviction of dozens of innocent parents for sex crimes against their own children.

I remember when these Bakersfield cases were going on but had no idea that these parents spent so much time in prison, or that they had only recently been released. Many of the parents and children who are in the film were up on stage for a Q&A after the film. I think listening to the children tell their stories as adults was probably the most difficult, and seeing them in person still suffering from so much guilt was heart-wrenching.

Available on Netflix and Amazon, and I highly recommend that you see this film.
