Harriet and David Lovatt purchase a large home with the intent of filling it with children and live in happiness until the fifth child, Ben, is born. He isn't normal, kills animals, doesn't understand the social norms, looks Neanderthal. What are they and society going to do with him? They can't find themselves to love him, yet Harriet refuses to have him institutionalized. Instead, society looks at Harriet as the monster. 4 stars!
