A Josh Mason Documentary Film

Based On A True Story From Arizona

A true-to-life adaptation of one of the first cases that Brian and Skye were involved with in Arizona. 

This documentary film depicts the situation a local 14 year old girl found herself in – locked in a dog cage during the day, and forced to have sex with dozens of men each night.

The case shook all levels of our community and turned law enforcement, business owners, individuals, and the faith community upside down.
