“A small miracle...with a huge impact!”- Matt Radz, Montreal Gazette

Writer/director Bruce Spangler was a child protection social worker for five years. In Protection he takes the audience on an explosive and powerful journey to the front-line.

Jane is a child protection social worker on the verge of burning out. Betty is a heroin addicted mother of two children. Jane fears Betty’s boyfriend might be abusing the children. As she investigates the case she discovers a loving mother who has lost control of her life, and is confronted with the extremely difficult decision of whether or not to take away the kids. In this line of work, decisions are never black and white, but they can mean the difference between life and death.
