If ever there was a life without hope, it's David's. As a little boy, his world is void of love, light, kindness, and happiness. He has no one to look to for protection; indeed, the adults in his life all betray him. His mother abandons him. His father is absent from his life. His step-mother beats him mercilessly. And in some ways the worst of all, those who profess to be religious and Christ-like turn a blind eye on his situation and see him as everyone else does: a stupid, lazy, worthless boy.
As David grows, he desperately tries to escape his past. After years of heavy drinking and broken marriage promises, David begins to realize that there must be another way. Somewhere, there must be a true escape. Eventually, David will learn that there is only one way to the light, and for that, he must rely on the help of the only One who can help him conquer the demons raging inside him. The journey back will be the hardest he's ever faced, and if he fails, both his life and his soul will be lost forever.
Broken is the true story of one man's journey to the darkest corners of Hell and back.
