A rural Arkansas community grapples with the devastating revelation that a local man used his position as a scout leader to sexually assault young boys. In SCOUT MASTER, journalist Josh Rushing investigates the horrific impact this abuse has had on survivors, specifically Heath Stocks — a former scout who was convicted of murdering his father, mother, and sister. This powerful true crime film from Al Jazeera's Emmy-Award winning documentary program Fault Lines situates these personal stories of abuse within the more than 80,000 allegations made against The Boy Scouts of America.
