The film that literally changed Lisa's life is called Cracked Not Broken. It was filmed by Paul, the husband of Lisa's best friend, Nicol.

The idea to make the film came from Lisa herself. At a time when she was sober and not prostituting herself, Lisa was visiting Nicol. Lisa told Nicol that if she ever went back to a life of drugs and prostitution, she wanted Paul—a filmmaker—to document what that life is like.

Nicol says that Lisa thought seeing the footage might be shocking enough to get her to change her life. "At the time that was the objective," Nicol says.

"Remarkable things have happened since this film was made," Lisa says. She now speaks in schools about her experiences with addiction and prostitution.
