Character BIOS

Lauren opens up about her life; learning of her daughter’s pain, being criticized by her mother, abused by her husband and how she deals with her confliction between keeping her family together or getting help.

Jay is unsatisfied with his life and he takes his frustrations out on his wife. Even though he is unhappy, he refuses to let his family go.

Sydney is a brave young girl who has been harboring hatred towards her father for the way he treats her mother. She wishes nothing more than for her mother to leave.
