THE MONSTER is a feature documentary about Paige Tolmach's journey to uncover the truth and institute change.  Told from her POV, Paige tells us the story that after a late night revelation of molestation by one of her best friends, she was moved to act in order to understand what went wrong at her tony, private school in the late 70’s and early 80’s in Charleston, South Carolina. She soon realized that the acts of one pedophile not only destroyed the lives of the many children that Coach Eddie Fischer molested, but the lives of so many more people surrounding each victim. Even more disturbing is that it raised enormous and troubling questions about Paige's school and all of her friends, including herself.
