Michelle Knight spent more than 10 years as a victim inside kidnapper Ariel Castro's Cleveland house of horrors. Now her inspiring story of triumph over evil is the basis of a Lifetime TV movie, Cleveland Abduction, with actress Taryn Manning portraying her.
In the video above, Michelle explains that she couldn't bear to watch some of the brutal scenes in the movie, particularly one which re-enacts when she was shackled in chains with another victim.
