"This is a riveting, heartwrenching account into a cycle of the "system" working against a mother who desperately tries to keep the only thing she treasures above all--her child. It is an indictment (without being preachy) of a system that won't work for her.
I first saw this movie when it appeared on TV, and I have never forgotten it. I am thrilled to own a copy which I use as a teaching material in conjunction with reading Herman Melville's "What Redburn Saw in Launcelott's-Hey.""
