Filmed at the Marylands Residential School (opened 1955), Halswell, Christchurch, NZ, run by the Roman Catholic Order Brothers Hospitallers of St. John of God, as a residential school for children with learning difficulties. The young boy in the film was in the care of the brothers of St John of God at the time of filming. Marylands School, more recently, was the centre of a number of sex abuse cases. A non-profit trust, the Survivors of Sex Abuse Trust, worked with many of the victims. Staff at the school were involved in 121 sex abuse allegations with about eighty former students.[2]
