This film provides a gut wrenching glimpse of a major social issue.
A major issue facing social service systems throughout the U.S. is that of family reunification. "Gregory K." presents a brief glimpse of the ramifications of that issue. Gregory is the hapless victim of physical and emotional abuse. He is an abandoned child. He is a "throw away" child. Still, a blind social services system would have easily perpetuated those abuses if it had not been for the support and love expressed by a few caring adults.
Still, the film leaves the viewer wondering about the fate of his brothers. The abandonment of Gregory's brothers illustrates the point. That other children enmeshed in the frustrations and agony of family reunification will never be so fortunate as Gregory.
