Storyline

Horrendous acts of sexual abuse were discovered at Miami's Country Walk Day Care Center in 1984. The ensuing investigations required unprecedented work and a pair of University of Miami psychologists were called upon for assistance. This case paved the way for a successful legislation in the protection of children during court proceedings and mandatory finger printing of adults who work with young children.

Excellent TV movie about difficult subject
3 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

Unlike the McMartin trial, there are no questions here. These folks are pure and simple child molesters. A very good adaption from a very good, large volume, so kudos to the screenwriter for boiling it down. Clayburgh and Davis are great as child shrinks. Again, character drives the story of child molestation in a daycare home. See it and weep, and learn.
