very sad and disheartening. The kids are so young and should be so hopeful, but they are coming into their early teens years and realize that their situation is never likely to change. It was heartbreaking, but a well done Frontline episode. This was made in 2012, and Frontline went back to see these same kids in 2017... I'm interested to see if anything has gotten better for them.

A must see if you like documentaries that tug at the heartstrings and make you think about the world around you.
