After 15 years of living in a cult, the unbreakable and wide-eyed Kimmy is rescued along with three other women, causing a national sensation that culminates with an appearance on the "Today" show.

Armed with just a backpack, light-up sneakers, a couple way-past-due library books and a big wad of rescue-fund cash, she's ready to take on New York City.

[show]In Episode 6, Xanthippe's female friend is finishing a story with the punchline "...and then she stepped on the ball." This line, the context and the pompous "Yuppie-esque" delivery, are borrowed from a similar scene in "Trading Places" (1983).
