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 saw this movie for the first time when I was about 12 years old, me and my friend talked about this movie for several years, and then we had to rent it one more time a few years later. It's the most frustrating, horrible, sad and true story I've ever seen. I will never forget the story even though its been over ten years ago. I can still imagine the boys' eyes, the fathers frustration and the "evil" people around them. You just want to be a part of the movie, help them - do something, everybody can see that they're treated wrong. I recommend this movie, because I think it's important to see what happened before to poor single-parents and their children. I cant understand why this movie never was released on DVD. I'm sure it would sell! Marita
