    This documentary offers insights into the pandemic violence among teen-aged youth in America today. Juvenile offenders, both men and women, who have fallen prey to alcohol and drugs, domestic abuse, or committed gang violence or sexual abuse, tell their emotionally moving stories of what it is like to be the victim, or in some cases the predator. Hosted by actress Alexandra Marks, the video also includes commentary by former juvenile court judge Eric Andell; Bruce Perry of the Child Trauma Academy; Adrian Garcia, Director of the Anti-Gang Task Force for the city of Houston; Scott Poland, President of the National Association of School Psychologists; Julia Wolf, Directory of Therapy Services for the Children's Assessment Center; and Larry Smith, Director of the Harris County Boot Camp. These victims, offenders, and professionals offer valuable insights into the nature of this critical public health problem in America and ways in which to address it.
