"Taking Back Hedy" is a true story about love and human triumph that unfolds as a woman's endless love for her children obligates her to stay in a marriage of forty-six years. Helen (aka Hedy) reveals her tremendous strength, courage and truth as she is able to stand in her power during times that would normally break someone in half. While in the U.S. Air Force, her verbally abusive husband admits to having had affairs with other women.

In the fifteenth year of her marriage, completely taken by fate, she meets her soul mate, Bill Vann; a married man with a beautiful spirit. They experience love at first sight, have an affair but with gut-wrenching heartbreak, stay in their marriages; never knowing if they will ever see each other again. Twenty-nine years later, she receives a letter from the daughter she so painfully gave up for adoption. It is her daughter who brings her biological parents together for a timeless and passionate reunion that encompasses a lifetime. As the anchor to the family she refers to as The Circle of Love, she is left with exposing her true love story to her three full-grown children.

Helen takes back her childhood name, "Hedy" and empowers herself to experience freedom and possibly her long-awaited, postponed love with Bill. The airport reunions leave crowds of spectators watching in celebration as Hedy leaps into Bill's arms and wraps her legs around his waist! Today, both in their mid-seventies they are married and just as in love as they were when they first met!
