The Orkney child abuse scandal, that came to light in 1991, cast a long shadow over those affected. One of the original fifteen 'W' children sheds new light on a notorious episode, compounded by institutional failure and mismanagement as he traces his own journey from a traumatic childhood on an island farm. the anguish of social rejection and struggle to adjust are laid bare as the journey of self-discovery for all the siblings takes various faltering and painful steps. A candid search for a father figure to replace the perpetrator is at the heart of mental torment and the longing for acceptance and finding a place in society includes numerous hurdles along the way. 

Compellingly frank, Whatever Happened to the 'W' Children? challenges established notions of deprived backgrounds and shines a ray of hope on how to come to terms with the past.
