The Children of Times Square is a 1986 crime drama. It is set in the title location in New York City. The movie was made for TV, at a time during the 1980s when street gangs were making big headlines in the news. A 14-year-old boy despairs of ever reconciling with his parents and flees his home. He ends up on the mean streets of New York, recruited by a cocaine dealer as a runner. He associates with other runaway teens in this underground street culture, while his parents frantically search for him. The story takes us to the seamy, gritty underside of the urban streets.
