Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
In this sad British drama, a family of 14 children is suddenly orphaned and must now consider how to keep themselves from being separated by the authorities. They launch a brave campaign in the face of nosy social workers who want to place them in assorted reform schools and foster homes. Eventually the eldest brother and sister realize that they must split up for the benefit of the younger children.
