Storyline

On one evening in a decade of sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll, the innocence of youth and family unravels. Five parallel coming-of-age stories dramatize the stages of grief. A youthful mother in a custody battle over her children, finds tranquility with the bottle. The abuse of her ex-husband still haunts the children; a nineteen year old drug addict, and his younger brother, a bullied closet homosexual.There's the story of the dog; a teen who offers sexual favors to gain acceptance, the challenged classmate who would do anything for her love, and the redhead beauty, haunted by a secret, tragic past. These lives and others will change forever on this final evening before their hangout, The Toy Soldiers Roller Rink, closes its doors for the final time. Written by Riding Hood Motion Pictures

The Youth of This Sick Country
13 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Erik Peter Carlson has broken the boundaries with this film. It is one of the realist depictions of our countries' youth. I never once saw this as a shock film, I saw honesty and truth behind every scene. This is really what is happening in our backyards. Kids are not as young as they used to be, and are growing up in a world with more possibilities and distractions than ever before. This is the modern world, and these are the newest leaders.

While this is not what happens with all of our youth, it does paint a beautiful picture of just a handful. This is happening all over this country. In the wealthy, poor, and everything in- between, our children are experimenting without any form of education or realization of their actions.

This is better and more honest than any reality program out there and it may scare the daylights out of you. This is our world, we must change it. F**king brilliant. Want to see it again.
