Believed

We all think we’d be able to spot a predator like Larry Nassar, the disgraced Olympic gymnastics doctor who sexually abused patients for decades. Of course you would believe a girl or a young woman who came to you looking for help. Right?

Believed is a story of survivors finding their power in a cultural moment when people are coming to understand how important that is.

It’s an inside look at how a team of women — a detective, a prosecutor, and an army of survivors — won justice in one of the largest serial sexual abuse cases in U.S. history.

It’s also an unnerving exploration of how even well-meaning adults can fail to believe.
