Brethren to burlesque: Sapphira’s story

Season 5 Episode 1

Welcome back to Season 5. We start with a love story. Sapphira felt like a misfit, naturally flamboyant but brought up by brethren. Eventually excommunicated, her life spiralled but then she met Tony. Tony had also been raised by brethren and together they started to heal. Sapphira talks about what it means to have the rug pulled out from under your feet and then find the real you through music and burlesque.
