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.

one of the best lifetime movies i've seen
9 November 2003 | by fuzy_white_strawberriesSee all my reviews

This was one of the best lifetime movies I've ever seen. It was kind of tough to watch, though. I was really impressed with the acting of the kids. I wondered if they understood what they were talking about. At the end of the movie they had a were they are now thing, so I'm guessing it was a true story, which makes it extremely disturbing.
