What would you do if I handed you forty thousand dollars?  That’s the question Angela poses to a gathering of women at an introductory Empowerment Session.  What she offers them is independence, community, fun, wealth, and perhaps above all—dignity.  Judith finds Angela’s offer irresistible, and joins The Dignity Circle.  And it seems like Angela’s promises are all coming true.  But to move up the ladder in the organization, Judith must recruit a new member into the circle.  When she brings Heather in, the new recruit begins to question Angela’s motives, and all she promises to those who join.  What’s really going on in The Dignity Circle?
