Storyline

The documentary, titled "Breaking the Silence: Children's Stories," deals with the effect of domestic violence on children. It follows a documentary filmed in 2001, "Breaking the Silence: Journeys of Hope," which documented the journeys of abused women from victim to survivor. This new program seeks to raise public awareness about the young victims of parental abuse and to encourage reforms that will protect these endangered children. An integral part of these children's stories is their experience with the legal system. Coverage of violence-related custody hearings help the viewer understand the process by which the court determines what is in the best interest of the child. Written by Dominique Lasseur

Excellent and informative
25 September 2006 | by See all my reviews

This is a very informative documentary about children, children who have been abused and are still placed in parentage with the abuser.

Interesting that all of the negative comments seem to come from father's rights organizations, critiquing and stating it shows only one side of the issue, implying that all men are criticized in this documentary, when the fact is that abusive parents and the children who suffer at their hands is what this subject is about.

Drlawyer states it is a hatchet job. Are you saying that it is a hatchet job on abusers?

Please watch this documentary and make your own determination.
