Calculated to make your blood boil Evil In Our Midst is a searing indictment of child sexual abuse and the impunity of the wealthy and powerful. A 13-year-old goes off to the shops on her birthday and is kidnapped and taken to the home of a powerful businessman who has a predilection for minor girls. Brutally raped, the girl is left for dead, but survives, and with the loving attention of her parents, slowly recovers. Elisa's father, faced with police apathy, decides to take drastic measures.
