What happened to Ashleigh?

Age: 36

Ashleigh was a victim of sex trafficking for years before having her daughter, who inevitably followed in her footsteps.  Ashleigh became a “bottom bitch” as a way to look after her daughter and other girls who are stuck in the cycle of trafficking, since she’s already lived through it herself.

Ashleigh notices one night that her daughter did not get money from a John after their encounter. She must report this to their pimp and Ashleigh’s daughter is beaten in front of her for her carelessness.
