BROKEN PLACES explores why some children seem more severely impacted by early adversity while others appear to thrive.

 By revisiting some of the abused and neglected children profiled decades ago, the film dramatically illustrate how early trauma shaped their lives as adults. BROKEN PLACES interweaves these longitudinal narratives with commentary from a few nationally renowned experts to help viewers better understand the devastating impact of childhood adversity as well as the inspiring characteristics of resilience.
