Looking at the legacy of abuse across State and Church run facilities, Gerard Mannix Flynn meets with generations of his own family who now speak openly about their childhood experience. Removed from their family home in the city for petty trangressions, the children were sent to a life of long work days, half-starved and poorly clothed, in institutions around the country. This powerfully personal, first-hand account reveals the endless cycle of dysfunction that has come to haunt their adult lives and we witness the family’s attempts to come to terms with the traumas inflicted upon them.
