As police investigation makes headway, slowly but surely an abysmal family drama unfolds.User review:When I was away on business I couldn’t help but turn to Lifetime, TV for women and stumble apon this overlooked film. This film is a dramatic masterpiece and should be viewed by all. Neil Patrick Harris delivers a great job in playing a confused youth bent in an uneasy yet dark situation. The story evolves two kids who are victim of strict parents who abuse there kids. The film is very touching and will jerk a few tears. The film touched me in so many ways, my spouse as well. One the most memorable scenes when a Lawyer gives Niel Patrick Harris a cigarette as he tells his story of darkness, it just great symbol of self destruction, lost and confusions. This film is truly a touching physiological adventure. Please TiVO it next time it comes on Lifetime, TV for women.
