Tauheedah shares her story of how she escaped domestic and sexual abuse and ultimately death against herself and her children at the hands of her husband by running away with her 8 children in this harrowing self produced short film. Hopefully this short but powerful film will inspire other people that are in turbulant relationships to leave their abusers and start over as well.
Laura Cowan was desperate and alone with two children when she moved into a motel with a man and his family. What followed was a bizarre, four-year odyssey of polygamy, torture and mental trauma.
Laura Cowan survived life in one of the most notoriously abusive households in recent California history. Now a speaker, counselor and forceful advocate for abused women, Cowan has come a long way since her abuser was sentenced to seven life terms in prison.
