In the second half of my film, I show Momma Grace having sexual relations with men in her husband's bed while Isabelle is tied to the cellar stairs. The actions excite the dog and he begins to chew on Isabelle's ears. Isabelle can't feel because she is being subdued by the men by them putting drugs in her baby bottle and even some instances of poison to slow her actions down even more-not to bother them while they come and go having sex with the mom. The men reveal what Momma Grace has to do with them to stay in the country. Dad explodes with anger by finally confronting his feeling of Momma Grace's actions toward Isabelle. He can't handle it and dies.
I show an explosion in the house as Isabelle starts having seizures and convulsions. The town doctor screams at mom at the sight of Isabelle's ears. CPS intervenes and Isabelle shows her magical enchantment of what life is to her-confusingly even after everything she has been through. Isabelle's illegal abortion kicks in and she ends up in the hospital. This connects the doctor who has suspected foul play onto Isabelle since she was a baby. All the stress blows up and Dad dies from it. Isabelle goes into a frantic sleep tossing and flashing back filling in all the spaces and questions of what has been going on. The drugs, sex, and abuse on Isabelle's body is all revealed through her flashbacks.

I wrote this after watching the movie ‘True Spirit’ on Netflix. I had been lost in a place I hadn’t been in before swinging in my yoga hammock. When I came back to the presence of my normal I realized I was very comfortably lost in the swinging in the dark with my eyes closed as a normal. I knew what to write after I saw Jesse’s story. I knew my body was pleasantly, comfortably accepting the new normal about to come and I embraced it. I wanted to share this but couldn’t figure out how to word it.

Rewrote "Beautiful and Resilient" to "I Can Overcome You" #newsong #lyrics #lorijeanfinnila #singersongwriter
I'm working on a composition for this song and think I have a pretty draft to at least put my lyrics to. Watch for this in my next podcast episode Lori Jean Finnila Singer Songwriter. Image by Moondance from Pixabay "I Can Overcome You" by Lori Jean Finnila Verse You take me down By one look at you Though I’m drawn to you I still have fear to face You’re so powerful Your strength takes me down At the same time The strongest to my imagination You are outside of my conception I’ll find a way to take my steps to you Chorus Though my fear appears to be stronger Your depth is far equal to I know, I can overcome you…… Verse Your dark and long Dry and strong Holding me in my chest I can’t breathe I can’t see straight But in reality You’re just a beautiful place Am I to move on from here And feel my true beauty and resilience I feel I need to take these steps And once I’ve done this They’ll be so many more I know, so sadly But so true Chorus Though my fear appears to be
This song comes from me looking down at the waterfront where I live in Portland, OR. I don't go down to it, I just look down toward it. I can see the bikes and people. Hear the noises coinciding with it from afar. Yet I hold my breath and clutch my chest to the what the remembrance of that spot brings to me. I'm still working on this emotional feeling.
