If we’re truthful about it, most of us will admit it: There’s a gap between who we are and who we yearn to be. In this episode, people confront the sting of getting honest with themselves. In the end, some find redemption, and some just stare into the abyss. There’s darkness in this episode, yes, but rays of hope have a way of shining in through the cracks. As you’ll hear Francesca say, “Life is too short, the world is too cruel. Just love one another.”
