A Home Like Ours ...
A Story of Four Children
' I don't know who my mummy is and I don't know where she lives - why did she go away from me? ' asks eight-year-old Eva who was abandoned as a baby. Her nine-year-old brother still finds the past too painful to talk about.
Eight-year-old Gary feels it must be his fault that he is not with his mother like his brothers and sisters. Five-year-old Peter, withdrawn from nursery school for disruptive behaviour, developed his own private language and cannot make himself understood.
These are normal children subjected to abnormal stresses at a critical stage in their early life. This film observes their daily life in a specialist home where they can begin to develop normally. It explores the relationship between abnormal delinquent behaviour and emotional disturbance in childhood.
