Based the true and chilling story of a young woman forced to live a traumatic life of rape and faith at the hands of a small-town, middle-aged pastor. Pastor Tony Allen saw Carolyn Crawford as an answer to his prayers and seized the opportunity to befriend, capture and imprison this young teenage girl. For him, it was the start of an exciting new life and a very rewarding career, one he had long-since envisioned and planned. For Carolyn, her new life became one wrapped in constant terror, degradation and secrecy that would last more than twenty years. Despite living in the same home as the pastor and his wife, she had unwittingly become the sex prisoner and baby-making business partner who would enable this pastor to elevate his popularity within his church and community, as well as allow him to enhance his lifestyle by selling their future offspring to families seeking children to adopt.
