Every year, thousands of American teenagers are kidnapped from their homes and shipped to Christian reform schools abroad on their parents’ orders. Many of these teenagers are gay or deemed ‘troubled’ and their parents hope these schools, which operate outside of U.S. law, will transform them into ‘healthy Christian adults’.
When young missionary, Kate Logan, learns of one of these schools, Escuela Caribe in the Dominican Republic, she sees the perfect opportunity to make a difference. Knowing nothing of their methods, and hoping to document the positive effects a place like this could have on struggling youth, she is allowed to live on campus for a summer. Once there, Kate discovers the shocking secrets of the behaviour modification program that is being forced upon students. She makes it her mission to free a young man who will change her life.
