A Good Boy is a powerful depiction of the crime of pedophilia. It is a tale about how a young street kid named Jason is entrapped by Bob, a pedophile. Bob befriends Jason and his family with money and gifts. He gains their trust and invites Jason on a little “business trip” where he abuses him. Out of deep obligation to provide for his family, Jason keeps the abuse a secret until one day, Raffy, a street educator, helps him.
Sexual abuse and exploitation of children is a crime on the rise. Perpetrators take advantage of sophisticated means of communication and networking, and it becomes more complicated to intervene in their harmful activities. The need for awareness and protective measures are imminent.
The animation trilogy “Break the Silence” provides a comprehensive tool for anybody who will stand up for the protection of children against a most horrific crime.
