In the summer of 1947, a mysterious thirteen-year-old girl, accompanied by her mute mother, seemingly appears from nowhere. When two thirteen-year-old boys fall deeply in love with her, they find themselves on a collision course with one another that could not only destroy their friendship, but take the tiny town of Medda, Alabama with them.

Excellent for bringing back fond memories of post WWII life in America.
I stumbled on 'Children' on TV yesterday. Became totally engrossed in the story and by the end found myself crying for those years of innocence lost and not sure what young Americans have gained. This is a film for those who want to look back through a rosy lens and see ourselves as we wish we were. It may not be Truman's story but he would have enjoyed it. I was brought up in the North in the 40's, 50', and 60's and did not experience the discrimination that Truman did. But for the rest--it's my mom, my dad, my neighbors and me.
Thanks to the producers for breathing life into this story.
