Elmer Jackson is a carpenter in a small Californian town in the 1930s. Struggling to bring up 4 young boys after the death of his wife, he is horrified when the Government (citing trumped-up charges of parental neglect) places the boys into various foster homes and institutions, unaware of the abuse that boys would then be subjected to. The conditions imposed by the court and the difficulties caused by the Depression make Jackson's determined and vigorous quest to find his boys extremely difficult. Written by

I can not describe the true likeness portrayed by all the charactors of the "Jackson" Family. I know because in reality the "Jackson's" are the "Armstrong's". Ellis was in fact a depiction of twin boys, Ellis and Elmer. Elmer, is my father. It was to say the least comforting to watch Mark Hammel potray my Grandpa. He had all his mannerisms down pat! And the most amaizing part of that was, my grandpa had been gone for years.
Yes folks, this horrific thing really happened! These men were destroyed forever. My father is probably the only one who came out of this with an attitude of "I Will!". I just wish to say thank you to the cast for bringing my family's trials to life. ad a better understanding of why my dad had a difficult time being a family man. Cathy
