The Miami Herald reports, "In the 1970s, when Florida began its attack on problems of violent teens and abused children, it left out a group that then became known as the 'throwaways' -- kids who fight with their parents, run away, ditch school. There are about 4,000 of them today in Miami-Dade and Broward counties." The eight-part series tells the eerily similar stories of two throwaways, born a generation apart. Both were involved in grisly murders. The reporter interviews the two women, their families and social workers.
