Synopsis

Four Catholic and Protestant children from war-town Ireland have their lives and attitudes changed after a summer in the U.S. with foster families. This drama is a companion piece of sorts to director George Schaefer's Emmy Award-winning "A War of Children" of a decade earlier, dealing with another aspect of the same tragedy. Filmed in Los Angeles and Dublin, it initially was titled "Holiday from Fear." Its battery of sound editors received an Emmy Award nomination.
