Storyline

Filmmaker Angela Shelton journeys across the United States meeting other Angela Sheltons in an effort to survey women in America. She discovers that 24 out of 40 Angela Sheltons have been abused just like herself. Then the filmmaker meets an Angela Shelton who tracks sexual predators and lives in the same town as the filmmaker's father who molested her and her stepsiblings for years. The filmmaker's survey of women becomes a journey of self discovery during which she decides to finally confront her past and her own father - on Father's Day. The Angela Sheltons complete the journey by teaching the filmmaker about forgiveness, faith and the power of the human spirit, no matter what your name is. In all probability, you know someone who was abused, if you think not, meet the Angela Sheltons. Written by Angela Shelton

Best movie on surviving child sexual abuse ever
23 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thank Angela Shelton so much for making this movie and allowing all of us to share her journey and meet so many other survivors. This movie is so empowering to survivors of child sexual abuse that I really feel it is a "must see" for everybody who has survived abuse. I am an Angela Shelton. I had the chance to talk to her after I watched the movie, and she is so genuine and such a fighter, and she has come a long way in her own healing process since she made that movie. The scene with her father in the movie is very frustrating, but she told me that she didn't need to confront him again because she knew her own truth and didn't need any confirmation from him to move on with her life (not that he's capable of giving it. Bravo Angela!
