Just Ask my Children is a 2001 movie starring Virginia Madsen and Jeffrey Nordling, airing on Lifetime TV,[1] and focusing on the Kern County child abuse cases.[2]


The movie tells the story of the Kniffens, parents who are accused of sexually abusing their own children. When Brenda and Scott Kniffen agree to appear as character witnesses for friends falsely accused of molesting their children, the McCuans, they find themselves entangled in a witch hunt for pedophiles in 1980s California. Their children, questioned lengthily by the police and therapists, finally agree to the claimed actions in an attempt to end the interviews. Arrested, and subsequently accused of abusing their own children, the Kniffens are refused access to their children for over two years due to efforts of the district attorney, and the judge, who wish to appear harsh on incidents of child abuse. Placed in an uncertain position, Brenda must stay true to her own resolve in refusing to admit molestation, the only course which would allow her access to her children throughout the ordeal.
