I Love You Mom Please Don’t Break my Heart

40 minutes, Grade 9 to Adult, Heartstone Pictures, DVD

This movie is the true story of one boy’s journey through a childhood of physical, mental, and emotional abuse. John Borgstedt, now a child advocate, endured neglect, isolation, physical beatings, mental degradation and unfounded admissions into numerous mental institutions. He eventually attempted murder within the custodial supervision of his deeply troubled mother. This movie is John’s factual account of his small, bruised body clinging to life, his struggle as a teenager fighting and winning against overwhelming odds, and his entrance into manhood as an advocate for the young and innocent, protecting them from experiencing a similar childhood of child abuse on earth. Movie has spiritual undertones.
