Nobody cares … except a tiny girl named Bea.
He’s been locked up in prison for sixty years. Now he’s free in a nursing home. Still imprisoned by his angry heart.
He’s been set up.
Bea’s mommy, Katty is abused by a former boyfriend. She follows her family’s tradition for living and parenting.
Until the boyfriend comes back for their daughter.
Released is a hero’s journey through pain and guilt. Clarence goes where we all need to go—cussing and kicking at every step—to be released from shame.
