Set against the backdrop of a Bronx Roman Catholic school in 1964, Doubt, explores the question of what happens when one's certainty takes precedent over everything else. A nun who is the head of a Catholic school, relentlessly pursues her suspicions about the priest's sexual misconduct with a young student, who also happens to be the first African-American child to attend the school. With unshakable faith in her cause, she ignores all suggestions that the incident in question might involve a more nuanced or different truth. Her "certainty" about what happened will have potentially devastating consequences, as she comes close to destroying a handful of lives, including, just possibly, her own.
