Between You & Me

In 2002 Michael Skoor was convicted of 20+ counts of child sexual abuse, and sentenced to 29 years in a California state prison. That same year director Chase Joynt met Michael’s daughter Rebekah while studying at UCLA. To Rebekah, Michael was an adoring, diligent, attentive and consistent father. As the local pastor of their San Diego Lutheran Church, he was well respected and well-liked, and news of his indiscretions sent insurmountable shock waves through their family and community. The continued commitment of Rebekah and her family to Michael while incarcerated has subsequently inspired many years of conversation about violence, gender, prison, and shame.
