Storyline

Coral Atkins tries to open a home for disturbed children when she's distressed by what she sees of current institutions and their uncaring attitude. Unfortunately, she has no qualifications, little money, and only the celebrity of her role in "Family at War" to help her. But she bulls her way through the red tape, finds advice, hires experts, and finally opens her home only to discover that the burdens and joys of caring for these children may be too much for her, and that her own past holds the key to her deep empathy with them.

actress witnesses the neglect of a young girl in a care home
27 December 2000 | by (Surrey, England) – See all my reviews

Coral Atkins who is an actress in a long running TV series, witnesses the neglect of a young girl in a care home and challenges the matron, who informs her that as professionals they cannot show emotion or get too close to those they look after. Coral's life is changed and she determines to start her own home for "difficult children" where there will be real care and love.

Not with a little difficulty she succeeds in starting such a home despite the authorities trying to keep her out. In this warm and loving environment the children settle and develop, perhaps knowing love for the first time.

Her career is hindered by the time and devotion given to this project and she suffers a breakdown as a consequence. She recovers and continues to give all of herself to these unwanted kids.

It is a true story and tells us of two things: if we are determined enough to do something, we can succeed; secondly, the care profession has become more of a profession and less about care.
