Storyline

From a broken home - his parents, Luc Lebeau and Sonia Leblanc, both with substance abuse issues and who are no longer together - and living within the foster care system, ten year old Tommy Leblanc is sent to Springboard, a juvenile detention and rehabilitation center, following what is only the latest troubling incident in his long troubled life. Each boy at Springboard is assigned an educator - Tommy's being Gilles Séguin - for dedicated attention. The strict rules at Springboard all revolve around respect for each other, the consequence of any contravention of the rules usually being revocation of any privileges, and being placed in isolation, that level of isolation based on the specifics of the incident.

Every child should get second chance.

Firstly, I need to say that team(director, actors...) did great stuff. I have never seen such movie before. And want to thank for such film cause it shows that not everything is well in our life. I see that during shooting psychiatrists were involved and showed us real dregs' of society life.

Have been shown properly the connection between sex and aggression.

You cannot make good by applying strict and violence. I mean, nevertheless child so bad behaved we always must show him the another way otherwise he would reject the whole world and we will have replenishment in crime in future when this child grows up.

If I were that teacher I would behave myself even more discreetly with such boy.
