While we see the exploitation that Betts, the reality show producer, had inflicted on the extended family intent to win the Shark Tank-like show, we also see the hilarious and heartbreaking manipulation that the family inflicted on each other which is only surpassed by the courage of Sarah who endures pornography, surrogacy and sex work.
