Care (2000)

Film details


Davey is 14 when he's caught stealing a packet of fags, and is sent to Glenavon children's home. It isn't long before he's singled out by the warden who begins to sexually abuse him. Physical and sexual abuse are routine, not only by staff of the home but also visitors, including a local magistrate. Davey tries to speak about the abuse, but quickly realises that a conspiracy set up by those in power makes his cries for help futile. [RAI]
