Butterbox Babies | 1995
Based on the true story of Lila and William Young, who built the Ideal Maternity Home in Nova Scotia for unwed mothers during World War II. Poor birthing conditions led to a high number of infant deaths. The dead babies were buried in nearby fields in small wooden butterboxes from a local creamery. The Youngs eventually entered into shady dealings with a New York lawyer who offers to arrange high-priced American adoptions.
