8:00pm – Monday, December 28 on CTV

As dictated by her religion, Judith Joseph (Kelly Rowan,THE O.C.) marries the charismatic Church Bishop, Josiah Leavitt (Richard Burgi, DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES, In Her Shoes), becoming one of his eight wives and mother to four of his children. When her 12-year-old daughter is molested by one of Josiah’s sons, Judith reports the incident to Child Protection Services, breaking the community’s long-held code of silence. Banished to an abandoned house on the outskirts of town, Judith begins to reconsider her community’s views and makes the brave decision to escape with her children. Judith struggles on the “outside” to build a new life for her family. But when she learns of Josiah’s plans to marry her daughter, she has no choice but to return to the polygamous community and confront the husband she had finally managed to escape.
