Inspired by true events, The Caging at Deadwater Manor will take you on a heart-wrenching journey, where a young woman is locked away in a psychiatric hospital by her father who wants nothing more than to keep her there forever. Find out first hand what it was like for her to be trapped against her will, and watch as she grows through her circumstances and choices.
On a cold, January evening, fourteen-year-old Jeannie Kynde is told that her beloved mother drowned in the murky waters along Florida's Gulf Coast. Her distraught father turns on Jeannie, no longer the caring father she once knew.
Four years later, Jeannie is finally old enough to escape her father's clutches, but he has different plans. He imprisons her at Deadwater Manor, a psychiatric hospital with an unscrupulous past. Between endless psychiatric treatments and a hospital staff up to no good, Jeannie faces insurmountable odds as each day ticks away.
Will she be locked away forever? Or can she fight against the nightmare that has now become her world?
