Sexual abuse is a taboo topic for men. Even when we hear the stories, we close one ear to the plight of the victim. We dismiss them as helpless or deserving. Rarely does anyone take an honest, fair, and objective look into the lives of these survivors to find out what makes them who they are. In turn, we are rarely given the opportunity to understand the issue to properly bring awareness and educate future generations to stop the cycle. "Sarah Had Blessings, Too" is an intriguing and responsible work that dives into the lives of four Chicago friends. Francisco Knight is a high powered real estate broker who was adopted into a rich family as a child, but fell prey to the eccentric appetites of the rich and powerful and now copes through an endless stream of drugs and loveless sex. His assistant, Evan Terwilliger, is openly gay. And while he was not molested as a child, he puts an unrealistic amount of pressure on himself to stay perfect in the competitive and sometimes shallow gay dating scene. Antonio Ward is a husband and father of a three-year-old girl who runs one of the hippest restaurants in the city, The Savoy. As a young alter server, he was abused by a priest and now battles porn addiction, feelings of inadequacy, and a broken relationship with God. And Grant Harrison is a server at The Savoy who was never officially molested, but learned at a very young age that it pays to be beautiful, especially in a world of rich men who felt entitled to beautiful things. No longer willing to live off of what others want him to have, Grant makes a power move that inadvertently propels everyone into self reflection. When pretending is no longer an option, the four friends help each other gain understanding, perspective, and true insight to themselves and the world around them. But, this is not without drama, as the powers that be come against the evolving kings. Will Franc learn to love anyone? Will Evan learn to love himself? Will Antonio learn to love God again? And will Grant learn to let others love him? The journey to the palace will certainly have speed bumps, but as the four friends would soon find out, sometimes the ending is more important than the beginning. And sometimes, the ending is just the beginning itself.
