Escaping Polygamy means leaving everyone and everything you know behind.
The series follows three sisters - Andrea, Jessica and Shanell - who bravely escaped polygamy years ago. Now their mission in life is to help others escape the polygamous lifestyle into which they were born and raised, and also help manage their new lives on the outside.
Together, the sisters work with people who are in various stages of leaving polygamy - from those who are just at the point of recognizing they have to get out, to those who are actively seeking to escape, to others who are struggling to adjust to the realities of the real world and the very powerful temptation of returning to the only lifestyle they know. Viewers learn that physically leaving the polygamous order is only the beginning of their journey.
