Eleven year old Moniques world is brazenly disrupted, as her father a Jamaican police sergeant bullies his sexual lust on her, violating her innocence. With inadequate protective systems in place, being fearful for the lives of her younger sister and herself, she is forced to find the courage to escape within. She arrives in America after three long years of torment and incest, where she is scorned by her mother who chooses the love of a pedophile over the care of her child. Through the power of forgiveness and the will to live, Monique finds the strength to be bold, exposing a subject that has been tabooed for too long.
