Forgiven Children


The children are not all right in this tale of unspeakable cruelty. When a 13-year-old boy incites heart-wrenching tragedy with a crossbow, all he can do is deny it. This fascinating twist on the scourge of bullying takes no prisoners. Moral questions are mantled here not by genre tropes, but as an all too true to life story ripped from the headlines, with harrowing repercussions. This intense edge-of-your-seat cautionary thriller delivers a scathing exposé of codified violence, a failed judicial system and the frightening dissolution of moral conscience.
