hoping to increase the work force - outlawed both birth control and abortion.
More than any other film I have seen, this captures the heartbreak and hopelessness
of street kids and their lives. The 5 kids we follow scratch out an existence living
together in a subway station.
It is initially hard to comprehend, as some of these kids theoretically have homes
to return to. But when we see the nightmare reality of those homes, we start to
understand that there are tiny children, some as young as 8, trapped between a
rock and a hard place.
A true horror film, but, like documentaries on the holocaust, one that has an
important reason to exist. To move people to action, and to make sure this kind
of institutionalized neglect - a problem in many nations - is brought to to an end
as soon as possible.
