Storyline

15-year old Davey Younger is sent to Glenavon care home for boys in Wales where he is subjected to sexual abuse by two of the staff and a visiting magistrate. The adult Davey, married with children, is approached by television journalist Elaine Hughes after sympathetic councillor Tony Collins has ordered an investigation into the historic abuse but Davey is reluctant to dig up the past that he has kept from his wife. Arrests are made but Davey is convinced that any allegations against the magistrate will not be believed. However he agrees to testify against him in court, though the result is not to everybody's advantage. Written by don @ minifie-1

Mackintosh and Bird deserve every plaudit.
13 January 2004 | by id247See all my reviews

I watched this film for the first time on Polish TV last night, and it blew me away.

I've been an admirer of Steven Mackintosh's performances for many years, but this is his tour-de-force.

Like many people director Antonia Bird caught my attention in 1994 when Bird was premiered at the Edinburgh Film Festival.

Together Bird and Mackintosh, well supported by an excellent cast, create a harrowing, shocking and nerve-shattering drama that only us Brits could make with such brutal honesty.

Well done all of you involved. 10/10
