Series Description

FRONTLINE is investigative journalism that questions, explains and changes our world. Since 1983, FRONTLINE has served as PBS's flagship public affairs series. Hailed upon its television broadcast debut as "the last best hope for broadcast documentaries," FRONTLINE's stature is reaffirmed each week through incisive documentaries covering the scope and complexity of the human experience.

Program Description

Single black man adopts 15 unadoptable retarded and handicapped children. Kojo Odo, a forty-two-year-old single black man, took in his first child a decade ago, a seven-year-old boy with an arm missing. No one wanted the youngster. Each of Odo's twenty-one children came to him with a physical or mental handicap. FRONTLINE looks at the daily life of this remarkable family and Odo's battle to keep the family together.
