Summary This is a powerful documentary on a brutal child abuse case. Through moving accounts by family members, teachers and doctors, we learn how a three-year-old was repeatedly mistreated by his father. A brutal beating when he refused to stop crying was the cause of his death. Eli's plight had not gone unnoticed. Over the years, it had been reported to Child Protective Services by his grandmother, his teacher, and the doctor who had treated his other injuries. Although Eli was removed from his family for a short period, he was returned because the mandate of the agency was to keep families together whenever possible. This tragedy has caused the state to re-examine its child-protective laws.
