Chloe Quayle is a proud Malyangapa, Barkindji woman, a talented artist and rapper and a respected member in her community. But 3 years ago things were wildly different. Chloe had been in and out of the system since she was 14 but this time Chloe turned herself in. She was pregnant and she was going to give birth in prison. This is a brutal story of a mother's love, the day that changed it all and how she is now thriving by overcoming the hardest moments of her life.
