A Brooklyn Family Tale
Produced by: Public Policy Productions Presented by: Thirteen/WNET

A BROOKLYN FAMILY TALE chronicles the struggles of the Santiago family and their unique relationship with Sister Geraldine who runs a local social services agency. As the parents watch their teenage children drop out of school, join gangs, have babies, attempt suicide, and resort to violence at home, we witness Sister Geraldine's remarkable efforts to keep this embattled family intact.
