It Was really cold winter

We had to move

to a different house.

My mom ... I guess was kind a lonely.

She was afraid of dad.

Especially because after

what he did to me

I love my dad.

I mean, I really did loved my dad.

After the divorce,

I didn't want to see him.

I don't want to hurt my mom.

most people

don't get that.

But if they did what I have

He will understand.

I was looking for the court


I just hate to see them fight...

but I still did not know how to stop it.

Aunt May!

- Hi, sweetheart.


- Hi!

How are you, doing DJ?..How are you doing?

- I'm okay.

Momma, look. McPherson.

- Yeah

Did you hear they bought the state bank?

- Yeah

Why they didn't just call that damn place

"McPherson Ville?"

"Mc Asshell villa" would been better.

- May.. is Mom here?

Yes spectacular as always.

- Come on.

Hi, Jocelyn.

- This is your lawyer?

I am Charlotte Kramer.

- How do you do?

I am her mother.

- I checked at the docket.

We're the first.

You should'nt take long.


How are you snowflakes?

- Good.

Go back to your mommy, okay?

- Come here.

Hi, Deeg.



This type of child custody case

is extremely emotional ...

especially when charges

of physical abuse ...

are made by one of the parent.

To this court,the welfare

of this children is paramount.

This case has made even more difficult

by the refusal of Mrs. McPherson

refusal to have her son testify.

Please remove the

children from the court room.

Take them out.

Everything will be okay.

Testing shows the boy

is under duress ...

but he evaded the

questions about his father.

Attendent Emergency rooms

and medical staff ...

are required by law to

report suspicious injurie.

They had not done so.

Giving the claim of

Physical abuse is pointless ...

the petition is denied.

Dennis McPherson ...

- My God.

You are granted joint custody

and full visitation rights.

Thank you so much.

- Congratulations.


Is over.

I do not understand. I do not know

what to do. How do I loosed?

The judge was all in his side

all along.

Let's go, okay?

- Be ready tomorrow morning.

nine o'clock.

- Scumbag.

Well, Joce, I know you will

have some adjustments to make..

at least until we get married again.

But this is the best for everbody.

You and I are still connected

forever, so ...

would be nice to try to get it along.

As usual, nothing was acomplish

here today with you.

How can he stand there

like nothing happening?

What about your grandson?

Come on. Let get out of here.




No stop. Dad! stop.

Please. No, Dad.



It's okay...It's okay.

It's Alright, baby. You just

have your bad dream. Okay?

Go back to sleep. It's okay.

Wait here. Alright?

Not to long.

I would not to go.

- DJ.


- DJ!

Listen to me honey. You have

to go, okay?

Because if you don't they can

take away you from me.

your brother for me? Thank you.

We gotta go.

Come on. Come on.

Let's bet on a race.

Come on. Come on.
