For years, 22-year-old Lira has struggled with the pain that comes from her father’s abandonment. Facing 46-year-old Michael, a visitor to the House of Healing who admits he’s been somewhat absent in the lives of his own 20-year-old daughters, Lira unleashes a decade’s worth of emotions in the form of forgiveness. She then empowers herself by asking four questions of her father that have long gone unanswered. Plus, watch how Michael and another House of Healing visitor comfort Lira in a moment of overwhelming sorrow.
After the three other male visitors in the House of Healing have the opportunity to speak their truth about their issues with “angry” black women, it’s Michael’s turn. The 46-year-old musician begins his session by addressing why women find him “weird,” but then he singles out 22-year-old Lira and other women her age in an unrelated rant, which sets her off.
