This live action short uses every second of its nine-minute run time to pack a powerful punch. The film has received an endorsement from actress Mariel Hemingway along with sponsorship from ChildHelp and other social agencies. Even as it brings much-needed focus to childhood abuse, the message never dilutes the drama.
