"There are some among us who live in rooms of experience we can never enter." John Steinbeck They were never children, rather possessions like a centerpiece. A bunch of wild flowers made tame by the vase that held them. Cut too soon, but purposely so. All of this in an effort to stunt their growth. After all, they were disposable. When they withered, they were quickly replaced with a fresh cluster. They were nothing to be valued or treasured. Merely props to hide the true nature of the beast behind their creation. Jezzemen, the youngest daughter of a well respected minister, has a secret. Yet, Jezzemen knows, "what happens in the home stays in the home." Follow Jezzemen, on her unpredictable journey to escape an abusive father and an absentee mother. Under the cloak of religious doctrine, Pastor Andre Tyrell creates an unbearable world of shame. As you accompany Jezzemen on this expedition for freedom, we pray that she can overcome the odds that are surely stacked against her."
