It’s the eighties in New York City. It’s the blind date of a girl’s dream, a fairy-tale courtship, a magical wedding in a Chelsea loft.
Maggie and John set up house in sleek condo in hip Hoboken. John’s a journalist on the rise and they have a beautiful baby, with another one on the way. In a flash, happiness is exchanged for devastating betrayal. For the next 25 years, Maggie keeps the circumstances of her husband’s death a secret. It is only when a journey of self-discovery aligns with her children’s coming of age and a new world of sexual tolerance that she can finally embrace the truth and set herself free.
But free from what you ask? Tune in and hear the truth that set Maggie Kneip free to share her story, her way, to heal her world and the world at large!
