I have watched this movie every time it has been on TV. I find it very heartbreaking that this is more common than we realize. As adults we have the choice to stay or leave a situation, a child does not have that same option. This story is based on my husbands sister. The movie is very accurate in it's portrayal of the abuse she and her children endured. Several things were omitted in the movie, but I am not sure where they got their information. This family suffers from the loss of a sister and mother that our judicial system could not save. Hopefully this movie will open eyes and help those that suffer to find the courage and strength to escape a bad situation.
