A DANCE FOR BETHANY tells an inspiring and compelling story of how one woman risks everything to help a sex trafficked victim out of the world of slavery and into a world with a future and a hope of fulfilling a childhood dream of becoming a real dancer. The fictional Bethany Stevenson is iconic as a 12-year-old runaway forced into sex slavery as a stripper/prostitute. The film chronicles the struggle of reporter Abbey Fisher to free her own self from the bondage of a politically correct and comfortable lifestyle. All the while she gets closer to exposing a secret that Ruby, Abbey's mother has been keeping for 35 years.After meeting and befriending young Bethany, Abbey immediately meets opposition from local club owners who don't want to lose one of their prime moneymakers. Abbey is quickly challenged when she learns that she is caught in a tightly woven web of politics, morals and crime and becomes a problem to those who want to profit from sexually exploiting young women. She takes on her husband and his colleague, Senator George Abbot and their attempt at creating legislation that inadvertently profits by the retailing of sex in the US thereby legitimizing it. With the help of Sarah, Abbey's Co-worker and Eric Vandevere, local dance instructor, Bethany receives support and courage to make a new life for herself and in the process publicly exposes the dehumanization of the sex trade in her city.
