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

Super excellent film I am seeking for a copy Video or DVD compatible for German or French system's. I would like to show this film to my daughter. I already told her about. Maybe somebody can help me . Even after 20 years this theme is actual. A lot of parents have the same problems in Europe and nobody is helping. I had nearly the same problem just because someone told stories and did not know my life style.
My daughter an me are living together since her birth and we are doing very well. I have my job and she is learning. We both speak French German Dutch and English. But somebody told the social assistant I do not work and my daughter is always ill ... and then the stress began.. see the film and you know how the social system is in Europe.
