    • TRUE STORY -
      MARA gives birth to her son, PIERRE, as an unwed teen,
      but LIONEL FLOWERS marries her and takes Pierre as his
      own. With their young daughter, CHLOE, the family unit is
      complete. They lead seemingly normal lives in Los
      Angeles until a call from the governor’s office brings a
      secret they’ve been keeping for years to light.
      Summoned to board a train to Northern California, where Governor Schwarzenegger plans to reveal a Child Predator measure named after Pierre, the family is thrown into a panic, fearing that their community will learn that Pierre was a victim of pedophilia in the church at the hands of his youth pastor. Lionel and Mara are determined not to let what was meant to be an honor ruin their lives again. Mara plans to convince Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger not to reveal their names.
      Pierre frets over what his friends and girlfriend will think if they hear about the event in the press.
      As they embark on their journey, he can't help but re-live the ordeal, from the inception of the abuse, to the revelation and aftermath.
      Returning to the city where the betrayal took place, the family is thrown back into the raw emotion of what happened. With unhealed wounds exposed, they have to choose whether it will continue to fester below the surface, or whether they will forgive themselves, each other, and find purpose in the
      pain.
