Child Sexual Abuse — Alone No Love

Alone No Love sheds light on child sex abuse in America. Through the work of the Chicago Children’s Advocacy Center (CCAC), one of the nation’s largest and most progressive centers for sexually abused children, we observe firsthand the challenging work of a multidisciplinary team of doctors, state’s attorneys, police officers and social workers whose tireless efforts continue to provide refuge for sexually abused kids in Chicago.

The story centers on the powerful account of Jesse Hall, whose father began molesting him at the tender age of 10. He suffered in silence for five years before finally coming forward to seek help. Jesse is just one of approximately 400,000 children who walk through the doors of a child advocacy center each year. He shares his intimate story, an ongoing journey to heal from the emotional wounds of his past.
