Overview

One woman's odyssey through a hellish life of sexual abuse, drug addiction, and crime is resolved in faith in this tough but inspiring drama based on a true story documented by evangelist Bishop T.D. Jakes. Michelle Jordan (Kimberly Elise) was raised by a single mother, Cassie (Loretta Devine), who became involved with a cruel and opportunistic man named Reggie (Clifton Powell). Reggie began displaying an inappropriate interest in Michelle when she was only eight, and at 12 he began violating her on a regular basis. Stung by her mother's denials of Reggie's wrongdoings, Michelle ran away from home and ended up on a dead-end road of drug abuse and prostitution, which led to a stretch in prison for murder. While behind bars, Michelle hears of the teachings of Bishop T.D. Jakes and his work with abused women, and writes the noted preacher in hopes of someday meeting him. To her surprise, Jakes (who plays himself) pays her a visit, and as she shares with him the story of her blighted life, she takes the first steps on the road to emotional and spiritual recovery. Jakes arranges for Michelle to have a three-day furlough from prison so she can attend a revival he's hosting in the area; opting to stay in a half-way house rather than see Cassie and Reggie, Michelle reconnects with many of her old friends during her three days of freedom, including former stripper Nicole (Idalis de Leon), childhood friend and hairdresser Twana (Debbi Morgan), and former boyfriend Todd (Michael Boatman).

Praises, nothing but praises go out to the casting director. There was so much cohesion with each character - no one dimensional characters here. A sad story that needed to be told and hopefully Hollywood will open the gates for the "real" Black Experience. We are more than walking wounded, we are threatened by society, our families and ourselves and this movie does not hold back in letting us know that we have our work cut out for us to do some real healing. I'm buying several copies of this movie and sending it to every woman I know with low self esteem. No explanations, no cards, just open that wound and anethetize it. Very moving, and it leaves you wanting more.

I watch this movie with so much understanding ,related to my past and to the present. What I mean is the protrayed in this movie touch me but not to the depth of heart. Somepeople who is very dear shut my heart and it have been lost ever since. I can;t commucate with a man without seeing myelf hurt by them I can't trusted them to love me for myself and not the portional claim 36-24-36.. 50 and I still see them as creatures of self. Sure a few thousand of women find a their heart /soulmate , but for me God he had seen me throu the roughtest time .A period On the Train Track of Kirk the 1960's . I was about to be rape. When A train rolled down the track. An Engineer Blew his Whistle Scare him OFF of me and I ran Home . I was Bless when this Engineer /Angel save my Viginity .I must have been aleast 9/10 of age. Mom sent be to the corner store for a can of delmonte peas. I could not tell her what had happen but I felt sure God said to me you are alright . Second Time wasn't so bad but I was exposed in the basement of my house . This a brother/cousin see allBut once again GOD was there he sent in my other brother to stop them. What is my problem WHY me I still asked myself that. Seek help no Seek GOD I believed he will answer all my Questions. IN TIME He had and still he Supply all my NEEDs
