Directed by: Tim Roth
Written by: Marc Parent, based on his book
Marc Parent worked for four years as a caseworker for Emergency Children's Services in New York, acting as the final protector of children from abusive parents, as "the one on the front line--the last hope for a kid in trouble." His job was to make house calls and decide if a child needed to be removed at once. In his book, Turning Stones: My Days and Nights With Children at Risk, he selected eight cases illustrating the extreme pressures of the work and indicating why it is that the system so often fails in its mission.
