Through the eyes of Kelly Franklin, Executive Director of 'Courage For Freedom', and others, we will tell dark stories with inspirational ends. Kelly, who comes from an affluent background, was abused by her father at an early age. With the emotional toll of that abuse weighing on her she fell in with organized crime and was subsequently trafficked throughout her youth. She endured the murder of friends, prison, a contract on her life, homelessness and more and yet, through perseverance, a new found faith and the love of family, she has been able to rise up and become an internationally known speaker and teacher who regularly trains police, politicians and business leaders on how to fight sex trafficking while addressing the unique needs of rescued girls. Thank you Kelly for your courage and for being part of this series.

A collaboration between Jaclyn VanHappen and B.K.Bakker this song was developed as a theme song for the film-series Men & Girls. It captures the human horrors of both men and girls. Men who have to spend their whole lives living a lie and girls, who through no fault of their own, have to endure the result of those double lives in the harshest ways possible.
Women and girls are often tricked or exploited into sex trafficking by unscrupulous men who manipulate them into thinking they care when all they really care about is the money.
How many men are living two lives? One an upstanding father, husband, grandfather, the other, a john who pays to have sex with women or girls? We want to connect the dots for these men and showcase the brutality of the industry they help support.
