This is one of the most sought after of the America Undercover films.
The show is about Scott, a 40-year-old divorced father, and his four childrenΓÇöJob (20), Craig (18), Heather (15) and Sam (13). Scott has been introduced to the rave scene, and Ecstasy, by Craig. The two of them go out on the weekends, with some of Craig's friends, and stay up all night, dancing in a drug-fueled trance. Occasionally, they bring Heather and Sam along for the ride. While some Dad's might fancy a trip to the park or to a game, scott prefers the drug soaked night life for his precious little ones.
HeΓÇÖs also aware of his role as a protector. One lengthy sequence documents a party at which Sam and Heather want to take Ecstasy for the first time. Scott is there, and is already rolling himself, and thinks maybe tonight is good night for Sam to try it also. Sam is only 13, and clearly giving your teen son drugs is A-OK with Scott. He gives them the money, and he even guides them through the experience, saying things like "feel good, Sam?" While his 13 year old son pupils rool around in his head and he can barely open his eyes. Parenting at it's finest.
Thank God, ScottΓÇÖs ex-wife doesn't seem to think this is a good idea. When she reads one of her daughterΓÇÖs letters and finds out about the drug use, she calls the sheriff, and Scott is arrested for drug possession. The filmΓÇÖs second half revolves around his legal problems, the extremely limited, supervised custody heΓÇÖs grudgingly granted, and the tear-stained faces of his children, who want to see him as much as he wants to see them. Or maybe they just want to do more drugs with pop, who knows. Regardless, it makes for one of the most fascinating and controversial documentaries out there.
