Storyline

15-year old Davey Younger is sent to Glenavon care home for boys in Wales where he is subjected to sexual abuse by two of the staff and a visiting magistrate. The adult Davey, married with children, is approached by television journalist Elaine Hughes after sympathetic councillor Tony Collins has ordered an investigation into the historic abuse but Davey is reluctant to dig up the past that he has kept from his wife. Arrests are made but Davey is convinced that any allegations against the magistrate will not be believed. However he agrees to testify against him in court, though the result is not to everybody's advantage. Written by don @ minifie-1

Brilliant, brilliant and brilliant !!!
2 October 2001 | by (Antwerp, Belgium) – See all my reviews

This movie is a must see for anyone who appreciates no-bulls**t straight to the point story-telling and great acting. An unbelievable performance by Steven Macintosh who is IMHO one of the best British actors. Hollywood should take lessons out of British movies and tv-series. One of the best things ever seen on television!
