Fact-based drama about a sociology graduate (Kathleen Quinlan) who starts working with teen prostitutes in Hollywood. The film does not draw back on its depiction of the brutality that the teens face nor of the exploitation that occurs from the pimps and johns who use them. Pat Benatar's song "Hell Is For Children" is used to set the film's theme. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

"I'M GONNA SWEEP THOSE HOOKERS RIGHT OFFA' THE STREET..."
15 August 2000 | by (NYC, USA) – See all my reviews

Kathleen Quinlan as suburban do-gooder. She's on a mission to help run-away teens off of the streets, and into her over-crowded home. The taming of the wild street children proves quite a challenge.

Lots of teens-in-despair here. Lots of 80's fashions (hair, make-up, bracelets, Oh My)

Watchable only because the movie's musical theme is Pat Benatar's "Hell is for Children".
