Synopsis by Maggie Sadler

14-year-old Erin "Tiny" Blackwell ran away from home and fell into the world of prostitution to support herself. The candid documentary footage reveals Blackwell at her most vulnerable, charting her journey from when she first crossed paths with filmmaker Martin Bell and his wife Mary Ellen Mark as a teenage runaway to today, a mother of 10 children and coping with drug addiction. The film sheds light on the struggles of Blackwell's children as they contend with the same demons that wrack their mother.
