Every adult and teen needs to understand that most prostitutes aren't just sluts who like the work. Many are good girls who get entrapped at a very young age, and who are beaten and kept hungry until they are disposed of, often to provide an example for other working children.
This woman describes her journey in a film short enough to hold the attention of at-risk girls like she once was. We've shown it many times in our institution, in part, because the girl ends up graduating from college, in spite of her trials. Carissa is a winner!
