Jane Alexander, Rachel Roberts, David Ogden Stiers and Nan Martin star in an affecting (and well worth repeating) 1977 drama about emotionally disturbed children and the adults who help them. Matthew Laborteaux, 14, once diagnosed as autistic before starring in this drama, later became a regular on Little House on the Prairie.
