Shattered Sky: In a fallen dystopian world where citizens pay for air and water, a heartbroken older sister perseveres in rescuing her younger sister from a human trafficking ring and realizes that the powerlessness of her past is what fuels the redemption of her future.
This short story is the precursor to the longer science fiction novel by Victoria Wieck called Shattered Sky, scheduled to be released in 2021. This episode is an adapted version of Chapter 62 in the longer novel.
Victoria Wieck is the epitome of the rags to riches American dream story. She immigrated from South Korea to America with her parents with only thirty dollars and has built a multi-million dollar business with over $500 million in retail sales.

She’s worked with a wide variety of retailers world-wide ranging from major department stores to duty free stores, as well as internet and TV retailers.
For the past 22 years (19 years on HSN, and 3 years on Shop HQ), Victoria has been sharing her jewelry designs with millions of viewers during her own monthly shows. She has built her highly successful business following her passion for jewelry, without sacrificing her family life. Throughout her career, she’s had to invent ways to have her products consistently outperform her competition and thrive
