Summary

  • Follows the cases of a number of juvenile offenders over a period of eight months in 1999 in the juvenile court systems of Lake, Marion, and Monroe Counties in Indiana. Covers topics such as the special difficulties of child sexual offenders, children who are violent and difficult to control in the home, parent substance abuse problems, and the recurrence of problems through multiple generations. Uses courtroom footage to reveal the intense proceedings in which judges must shape the futures of both children and parents. Features discussion by therapists, child welfare caseworkers, foster parents, and staff members from assistance organizations about their efforts on behalf of the children.
