The Long Journey Home
I am Stephanie's mother and I had no idea when she was growing up what she was being put through. She grew to hate me in my ignorance, and this film is my gift to her and to a world in crisis. I am far wiser now...I know the signs... My present husband and I drove from Salt Lake City, Utah to Nogales, Arizona where Stephanie was finally able to be reunited with the little girl she left behind when her life went spiraling out of control. We brought her up to Utah, to avoid a prison sentence six years ago, and she dragged her past with her. After serving her probation in Utah, she still couldn't straighten up. Finally, a DUI saved her, throwing her into drug court where she was forced to attend AA and destroying her plans to be with her daughter. A year of sobriety later, Stephanie was able to move back to the place she calls home, and the little girl who loves her.
A documentary featuring thirty year old Stephanie Espinosa speaking about her life.
