At a Buddhist temple in rural Cambodia, a man who resided there for over a decade is arrested for sexually abusing at least 17 boys. Investigators track down victims Se Bros, a high schooler who was first to report the abuse, and Monk Ry, who lived together with the abuser at the temple. As Bros and Ry contemplate on whether to testify in court, the chief monk reveals that the monks knew about the abuse all along. Gateless explores how a Buddhist temple intended for the pursuit of peace and tolerance can become a place where children are violated.
