Summary
This unusually sensitive film is a powerful reminder that adults must take children seriously if they hint that something is amiss at home. Abusers often silence children by telling them they will not be believed or threatening them with dire consequences. This was the case with the Kavanagh sisters whose hesitant attempts to seek help fell on deaf ears. It still amazes the sisters today that in their crowded household of ten children their father found private corners to sexually molest them. Even their mother had many blind spots concerning her husband, not wishing to look too closely. These painful stories of repeated abuse are interwoven with poems and drawings of other sexually abused children. As grown women the Kavanagh s found the strength to come forward and prosecute their father in a court of law. They cannot forgive the man who took their childhood away from them, but at least the healing process has begun
