Sins of Silence

Sins of Silence is a 1996 American made-for-television drama film directed by Sam Pillsbury and starring Holly Marie Combs and Lindsay Wagner. Though set in San Diego, California it was made in Toronto. The film was broadcast on February 20, 1996 in the United States by CBS and in Canada by CHCH.


Molly McKinley, a former nun now employed, and grossly underfunded, as a rape counselor. A teenager named Sophie seeks out Molly's help after she is raped by the scion of a wealthy family. Refusing to release a confidential file that would reveal Molly's past promiscuity, and thus seriously compromise her case against her assailant, Molly is sent to jail. The problem now becomes two-pronged: If Molly wants to be released, she must hand over information that may allow the rapist to go free; and if Sophie doesn't speak up, Molly's future career will be destroyed.
