Imagine what it is like to be born into a legacy of discord. Endure a childhood formed amidst deep rooted ills molestation, violence, alcoholism and apathy passed down irresponsibly like hand me down clothing. Navigate a coming of age entangled in urban street drama and the vicious cycle of crime and injustice. Free? is an autobiographical account of a young woman’s struggle to get free from physical, emotional and spiritual bondage. The raw circumstances of gang life, drug trafficking, rape and incarceration that she reveals about her journey do not constitute everyone’s “normal”. The peace and saving grace that transforms her life, the redemption and resilience that emerges is everyone’s story of a true testament of the triumph of the human spirit over the perils of the human condition.
