This documentary is about Amariche Hawkins and the abuse he experienced as a child.  Amariche was neglected and abused by his schizophrenic mother. His mother's illness was classified as, "passion" and her behavior was excused by everyone that suspected something was wrong. Although Amariche's sisters were removed from the home, he remained. Eventually, he decided to return to foster care and age out in the system. His story shows that it is ok for men to be vulnerable because that is how the healing begins. With that healing comes strength and peace.
