A group of children, age 7 through 14, are left home alone at a house in a secluded community in the countryside. Their innocence is gradually corrupted as they experiment with rule-breaking, ultimately leading to house break-ins around the neighborhood. The arrival of the maids son, a teenager of lesser privilege, exposes prejudice and ferocity climaxing with crimes that force the children to re-examine their actions. This powerful, critically acclaimed film, a film Martin Scorsese calls “Great work with a true sense for character and place” looks at adolescence leaving no one untouched, and the children involved, changed forever.
