This limited release documentary examines how abuse, neglect and other adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) affect children’s development & health outcomes in adulthood. Research shows ACEs are common, they affect all income levels, and their impact on health and well-being is significant. “The child may not remember, but the body remembers.”
There will be short commentary and discussion following the film and time allowed for audience participation. THIS FILM IS INTENDED FOR ADULT AUDIENCES.
