a hard look at the devastation of child abuse
6 December 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film was made in 1982, I finally saw it. I must tell you it is a most devastating docu-drama on child abuse. We have a film student who is making a documentary about child abuse & he meets a lad of 14 who has been badly & viciously abused by his parents.Both the film student & lad are both gay . We learn about the lads abuse & other abusers (parents who abuse the small children in public playgrounds) as the story develops we all realize the lad & film maker are falling in love. This film is harrowing & sometimes hard to watch. BUT see it. You will be enthralled as I was. Jay Harris
