Hosted by Art Linkletter and featuring family specialist, John Bradshaw, this film explores the lives of children brought up in families where violence, addiction and neglect were present. This film tells of the impact parents have on their children and how the healing process is difficult, but possible. Healing is done through acceptance of reality, grieving the losses and through awareness. We see and hear:

  • individual stories about memories of childhood
  • how lives have been touched by seeing violence as a young child
  • the ravages of addiction
  • the lifelong effects of different types of neglect
  • the importance of our early childhood years and how they affect us as adults
  • how who we are today is dependent upon the families that we come from
  • how we must heal from these issues and not carry them on to the next generations
