Lonely, Young Runaway Sold into Sexual Slavery Discovers New Hope and Love as a Woman
Despite her rough past of prostitution and erotic dancing in Southern California, Tootie fortunately meets a preacher named Johnny Mack, who rescues her by buying her from Carlos and later marries her. For a year or so she indulges in the happiness she craves, a normal, loving family. Unfortunately, just when life couldn’t get any sweeter, the chairman of the deacons at Johnny’s church, one of her former clients, blackmails her for sex. She gets pregnant and eventually, through an accident, Johnny discovers the child is not his because of the blood types. Johnny forces Tootie to leave their home without her children.
Her problems snowball when a religious cult, The Sacred Path of Natural Enlightenment, befriends the lost Tootie as she is searching for a way to return to her family, or get her children. The cult drugs and kidnaps Tootie, taking her to their clandestine order based just outside of Portland to become one of their tantric priestesses. After she stumbles onto a set where they are filming a snuff film, Tootie realizes she too will be killed, so she plans an escape. Her plans are discovered and her execution is ordered. During her heroic escape from the enforcers she is wounded and taken to the hospital. Finally, Johnny is summoned and after some intense conflicts he relents and asks her to return home.
From being forced to work the streets of California as a young woman, to attempting suicide by jumping off a cliff and then finding herself involved in the rituals of a dark cult, Tootie’s tale not only explores, but exposes the horrors and psychological damage of human trafficking. It illuminates this commonly ignored, underground world of decadence for the first time in years. “Tootie Greene” is an unflinching portrayal of a woman who dreams of the stability and affection of a family, a dream that many take for granted.
