She defended her life from the predators that came in and out of her mothers home in Atlanta.

With the constant disappointment of being rejected by the one person she cares the most about (her mother), Monique finds comfort in her journal. With no one left in her corner at the tender age of 8, her poetry becomes her best friend. She writes her innermost dark secrets, never to reveal them. Finally getting the courage to know when enough was enough, running away from the abuse, drugs, molestation, and neglect. Monique left her only best friend (her journal). Finally freed of the horrific life, she begins to blossom into a beautiful women under the loving care of her ... Written by Henderson Maddox

Left me wanting more
12 July 2012 | by debra-craig5See all my reviews

This was an interesting short....a story that needs to be echoed. I only wish there was more! It made me cry and smile....I want to know more about the victims in the movie. I want to see more of Robin Givens. This is a true tear jerker. In the short amount of film you could feel the pain and anguish the little girl was going through. I'd like to see the characters developed more. I never saw this movie advertised, but should have been.I would recommend this movie to all of my friends and it would be the perfect movie made for television. I have a lot of unanswered questions. I know this movie was done in 2009 but if the producers are reading this I would think that many viewers would tune in for 1.5 hours.
