LEAVE NO TRACE

Documentary

The Boy Scouts are an American institution, lauded by multiple presidents as the epitome of integrity and described by one interviewee in the documentary Leave No Trace as “wholesome as apple pie.” But beneath its Norman Rockwell exterior lies a scandal—and a coverup—of shocking proportions. More than 82,000 men have come forward with charges of sexual abuse against scoutmasters and other authority figures within the Boy Scouts, prompting bankruptcy filings and a massive settlement that’s still moving through the U.S. court system. 


Ron Howard and Brian Grazer executive produce this impactful documentary from director Irene Taylor, who partners with ABC News for an investigation into decades’ worth of sexual abuse allegations against the Boy Scouts of America. Leave No Trace asks how the Boy Scouts could have gone so horribly astray—and, more provocatively, if exploitation is built into this seemingly clean-cut organization’s DNA. --Cara Cusumano
