AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Loosely based on a true story, this is an inspiring and unflinching account of a brave boy's struggle to recover from abuse. Josh is sexually abused in an institution where he goes after his grandmother falsely accuses his father of abusing him. Told from the boy's perspective as a sixteen year old looking back, this is a very personal story of triumph over the odds & also a confronting look at some of society's systems & institutions.'
