"Leaving Neverland" will be broadcast in two parts on HBO. The film explores the separate but parallel experiences of two young boys, James Safechuck, 10, and Wade Robson, 7, both friends of Jackson. Through interviews with 37-year-old Safechuck and 41-year-old Robson, along with their mothers, wives, and siblings, the film paints a picture of ongoing abuses, exploring the complicated feelings that led the two men to confront their experiences after their two sons had their own.

"He told me that if they found out what we were doing, we would go to jail for the rest of our days," said one of the men in the trailer. "I want to be able to tell the truth as loudly as I have had to tell lies for so long."
