An intimate portrait series of women in a residential recovery program for sexual abuse, sex trafficking, prostitution, and chemical addiction.
What recovery means for these women: healing, restored hope, restored lives and restored relationships. Children and families thought forever lost, are reunited. Long buried dreams for a fulfilling and purposeful life become possible.
The unanticipated gifts of recovery are the close relationships and community that develops when these women trudge the road of recovery together. It is in fellowship with her sisters, she will learn to love herself and find her true self for the first time.
