This documentary chronicles the journey of 5 men whose lives were changed by childhood sexual assault.

Despite being surrounded by loved ones, these survivors continued to suffer in secret while family and friends were kept in the dark and at a loss to understand the trauma they were going through. There is no shame is recognizing and facing one's trauma. These stories are not much different that other boys-turned-men who have shared the same history. Boyhood Shadows, airing Wednesday, July 3, 2013 at 7 p.m. on WXXI World, is breaking the cycle of silence and shame by giving a voice to the wound and facilitating healing.
