After Leyla fled her state from her most recent abuser, she worked hard at starting a new life. However, lurking in the shadows was the father of her son, and he did everything in his power to halt Leyla’s fresh start by alienating her child from her. 

It’s a story of addiction, financial abuse, mental health, custody, kidnapping, bad lawyers, rehab, being a good mom, and staying the course.
