Emily O'Brien is a beautiful young woman. But like so many, she was insecure and bullied as a child. This insecurity led to abuse of alcohol and drugs. When someone she thought was a friend took her on a trip to St. Lucia, she ended up bringing back drugs to Canada and from there ended up in prison. Rather than bemoan her fate, she learned all she could in prison and left with a successful gourmet popcorn business that employs ex offenders and ex addicts.
