Storyline

Roger Dollison, a police officer, and his wife Kendra are living the American dream. They have two children, Teddy and Sandy, a lovely home, and a dog named Rex. What they know and how they live as a family is irreparably changed one day when it is discovered that a classmate of Teddys' is the apparent victim of sexual abuse and molestation at the respected neighborhood daycare center. Like all other parents, the Dollisons are tormented - "we should have known, we should have seen" - but their devastation is complete when Teddy tells his own story, one he promised his abusers he would never tell.

It was wonderful
8 January 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie in a psych class and I thought it was wonderful. It was very educational and I don't think it should be compared to the McMartin trial. In the movie the people being accused weren't punished nearly severe enough and watching it was upsetting but much better than ignoring a hard subject matter. I would recommend anyone to see it. It's important to be informed about things like that and this movie did a horrible wonderful job of doing that.
