This miniseries about a 7-year-old boy abducted by a pederast and held captive until he was 15 had a visceral effect, thanks to exceptional acting by Corky Nemec as the teenage Steven and Arliss Howard as his abuser. (Steven Stayner, on whom the program was based, died in a motorcycle accident four months after it aired. He was 24.)
