Goofs

It wouldn't be possible for Gypsy to sign the POA docs without a notary present. The shot even showed the witness section, but there weren't any witnesses present either. DeeDee would not have been permitted to be a witness. hashbrownlegaldocumentnerd. See more »

The Only Way Out of the Fire is Through It
15 April 2019 | by scottsetchellSee all my reviews

In 2013, Gypsy has strong feelings towards men. Dee Dee is diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. Lacey shows Gypsy a dating site and she's in awe. Since Gypsy turned 18, Dee Dee looks for a way to keep her guardianship over her. Gypsy secretly buys a laptop and meets a guy who teaches her about sexuality.

As Gypsy grows up and feels better, Dee Dee's health gets worse and drags her down. It's impossible not to feel bad for Gypsy, who's been sheltered and lied to her entire life. With the help of her new friend, Gypsy hopes to one day break free from her mother's clutches.
