You're no son of mine
14 September 2017 | by CeccacciPaolo1977See all my reviews

Could the sadism be passed down from father to son? That's an issue that tear down the main character of Law & Order franchise. I remember Det. Olivia Benson, as a rapist's daughter, had to face this thing down throughout the SVU series because of his step brother. Anyway, the criminal offspring usually suffers from their abusive parents; the poor Keith (Paul Sparks) can't deal with something horrible seen during his childhood and even if he's in his thirties and a lot of water flew under the bridge, he doesn't manage to find a job, he can't live a normal sexual life and he's afraid of everything.

The old man (Kevin Conway) it's the one who should spend his entire life behind bars. How could a man throw mud to his only child?
