THE CHILDREN NEXT DOOR recounts the fear and pain of domestic violence through the eyes of children. The film takes us on a family’s journey to uncover the truth that lies beneath a reoccurring cycle of violence and the solution to end it. In so doing, they discover the path to reaching their full potential.

Raised in Tennessee households fraught with domestic violence, Penny and Brad Waldroup vowed when they fell in love to end the cycle. A ten-year marriage plagued by waves of mounting violence, all in front of their four young children, culminated one horrific night.

The film opens five and a half years later as the family continues to struggle with the impact of the violence that shaped their lives. Within three short months, we witness an astonishing turn of events.
