This film introduces the physical and emotional changes that happen as we grow from birth to early adulthood. While more subdued than most of the cautionary childhood tragedy films made by Sid Davis Productions, this film still features some of hallmarks Davis is known for – a baby in peril, cartoony illustrations superimposed over a scene to set the tone or establish the feelings of a character and a droning voiceover narration. Also, Jill, the adolescent girl doing the shoe stretching dance, is Sid Davis’ daughter whose naivety about the dangers of the outside world led Sid to make his first film, Dangerous Stranger.
