I’ll decide myself!

A series by Roy Dames about children who show the first signs of criminal behaviour and the way their parents react to this behaviour.

We all see them around the streets: loiterers. Usually the prequel to a criminal career. Just as many other Dutch people, I am (Roy Dames – living in the Bos en Lommer neighbourhood in Amsterdam) too confronted with the loitering, trouble causing youngsters. As an outsider one would say: “Where are the parents?”, “Are they not witnessing this?”, “Are they not doing anything to prevent this?” Eventually the solution to these beginning criminals should be found within the ‘safety’ of the household. What makes for one child to make wrong decisions within an entire family? In this TV-series, three families will be shadowed, all with one child heading towards a criminal path.
