The Children Next Door recounts the fear and pain of domestic violence through the eyes of a child. The film takes us on a young family’s journey to discover the solution to end a reoccurring cycle of violence and the truth that lies beneath.

Raised in Tennessee households fraught with domestic violence, Penny and Brad vowed when they fell in love to end the cycle. A ten-year marriage plagued by waves of mounting violence, all in front of their four children, culminated on one horrific day.

The film opens five and a half years later as the family continues to struggle with the impact of the violence that shaped their lives.

Within three short months, an astonishing turn of events forces Chelsea, the oldest child, and her mother to confront some tough truths about the past. In facing them, Chelsea begins to find an inner strength and see her true potential.

A panel on childhood domestic violence will follow the film.

Sponsored by Children of Domestic Violence & The Natioinal Coalition Against Domestic Violence

In cooperation with Jade Woman de LaLonde, National Coalition Against Domestic Violence
