Refusing to give up faith and hope, Isabel faces the troubles of the profession as it becomes even more dangerous.
Action on Film director and creator, Del Weston, says 'Robert Butler has told a story that is so heartbreaking, so vicious in its reality and brutality that it transforms into something beautiful, haunting, and sad. It is a must-see film.'
Weston goes on to say, 'the performance by the lead actress is nothing short of brilliant. Her facial expressions, physical interpretation, and manifestation of this role is one of the top acting jobs I've ever seen.'
