By the Eighties, John Zielinski was a well-known author and photographer. His work had appeared in Life Magazine, The New York Times, The Chicago Tribune and countless other publications. But in a devastating 1984 contract dispute, he lost $50,000 and his professional credibility. “This was the opening shot – turning me back into an investigative reporter.”
Today Zielinski is the most blacklisted author in the history of Iowa. For 25 years he has dedicated his life to exposing human traffickers, pedophiles, drug dealers and Satanists. But as he says, “They don’t kill you unless you become effective.”
The film traces the rise and fall of a true American original who has sacrificed everything in his quest for justice. Filmmakers Chase Thompson and Ryan Walker tell the story without voice over, using 47 years of source material, new interviews and music by Mark Speckman.

At 47:35 in the second video, Polly points out that since the mid- to late-1980s, local area people could no longer take child abuse cases into their own hands (especially large cases in court) because a system was engineered to require centralized “expert” testimony. The McMartin case spanned a 7-year period and failed at that time, due to lack of evidence – “Tunnels? What Tunnels?”
Today, thanks to the “drain the swamp” movement, children are heard; thanks to technology, surely the tunnels would easily be found; “experts” might be found to be part of the problem, not the solution.
