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.

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!
