Twist of Faith Comes to Toledo

ABC 13

October 21, 2005 - Oscar nominated documentary will have its first showing in the Glass City this weekend.

A documentary about a Toledo man who accused a priest of sexual abuse will finally open in Toledo. The University of Toledo Department of Theatre and Film will screen "Twist of Faith" Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The film tells the story of Tony Comes, a Toledo firefighter who received a $55,000 settlement from the Toledo diocese, after he claimed a priest sexually abused him as a teenager.

The movie did have one private screening in the area, in Maumee back in June. This weekend will be the first time it's been shown on the big screen for the public in Toledo.
