Iyanla travels to Birmingham, Alabama, to work with Kim and Annette, sisters whose relationship with their mother, Charlene, is at a breaking point. As little girls, the sisters say, their mother traded being a good parent for relationships with men who were often controlling and abusive toward them.
Years later, unresolved issues from the sisters' painful past threaten to destroy their relationship with their mother, who is broke, alone and dependent on their support. In an emotional process, Iyanla helps hold Charlene accountable for her parenting missteps and works to reopen the lines of communication between the three women—before it's too late.
