Plot Summary: Based on the book “Broken” by Daniel Clay. The book is described as follows:
Summer has just begun, leaving 11-year-old Skunk’s (newcomer Eloise Laurence) days filled with dreams and curious wanderings. The one obligation placed on her by her devoted, single father (Tim Roth) -- she must always remember to regularly check her diabetes. The bond between Skunk and her father is loving and full of trust. It makes Skunk feel invincible.
However, when Skunk witnesses one neighbor savagely beating Rick, a psychologically-troubled boy from the neighborhood, her innocence begins to vanish. Despite the best attempts by her father to shield her, Skunk is unwittingly drawn into her neighbors’ unfolding melodrama of violence, sex, and illness. Filled with fear and doubt, Skunk’s happy childhood threatens to fall away leaving a broken, complex future unless she can be saved by the intense love of her father.
