Episode 3 of the "Maple Ave" Series. Ashley resorts to 'cutting' to cope with an abusive father, who's regularly victimized her family as far back as she can remember. Like a growing number of teens nationwide, Ashley regularly cuts her arms and legs, substituting her overwhelming inner pain and rage with an external pain that she is seemingly better able to manage. This last illusion is finally dispelled in a heart-wrenching ending that finds a desperate Ashley reaching out to a sympathetic teacher for help. NOTE: Contains profanity.
