A visual testimony about life after sex-slavery and abuse. One woman's secret and fear to share what happened to her almost ruins her. Actress Brook Bello shares her story of survival from rape and sex-slavery in the US and goes on an emotional, spiritual and physical journey that will take her from suicidal thoughts, pain and addiction to a life of healing. Traveling through the Middle East, she connects with women who, like her, were tortured and not allowed the freedoms of life that Brook is now fighting for.
