This film is based on a true case in Philadelphia of a boy found dead in 1957. The boy's body, bruised and naked, was found in a cardboard box in a patch of woods off a dirt road on the city's outskirts in February 1957. He was a symbol of child abuse at its worst. To this day, he has no name. See more »
Farley Granger stars in this 1984 film, as a Medical Examiner who becomes obsessed with finding out the identity of a young boy who was found dead, without identification. Because his own child had died at a young age, the Granger character becomes completely fixated on discovering the boy's identity, at great personal cost.
This film is in fact based on a true incident that occurred in Philadelphia in 1957. I have included an exceprt of a 1/1/07 article on the case from the NY Times in the IMDb Message board for this film. The parallels with the real case and this film are quite striking.
I strongly recommend this film, and then reading up on the true case that inspired it.
