The inmates of Bangkwang prison in Bangkok have nothing to look forward to. Except a visit from their own personal angel. This is the story of that angel. Susan Aldous had been on a path to self-destruction when she decided to give her life to others instead of wasting it away in Melbournes dark underbelly. Working as a Playboy bunny girl, an admirer sponsored her to travel abroad for charity. She left a world of drugs and petty crime behind and moved to Singapore, then to Thailand to work on a nine day project helping the socially disadvantaged. 15 years later she is still there. A single mother with no salary and few possessions, she devotes her life to helping others, visiting prisoners who have nobody else to turn to. Whether it is teaching young Thai men to accept the world they live in, or helping foreign inmates adjust to life in a Thai jail, Susan is a one-woman charity phenomenon. This is her story.
