Soft Is the Heart of a Child


This award-winning drama explores a classic alcoholic family situation — a father who drinks too much, a mother plagued by frustration, guilt, and denial, and three children whose suffering takes different forms. Brian, age 11, is the oldest child. He takes on the roles of protector and surrogate parent to his young brother Terry and little sister Lisa. Terry, who bears the brunt of his father’s misdirected anger, reacts to the home situation by becoming a troublemaker at school. Lisa, the most affected of all, begins to withdraw from her unhappy reality into a fantasy world. Help arrives through an understanding and perceptive school counselor.
