It’s not easy being a teenager, and when the passage to adulthood is paved with sex and drugs, it makes the coming of age even more difficult for those involved. Shaye, Brenda and Nikki are all seventeen, beautiful, and caught up in living secret lives that no one their age should be living.
When Shaye’s mother was killed by a drunk driver, it left her to be raised by her father, a novice junkie who would do anything for his next fix; including pimping out his daughter’s best friend. The only comfort Shaye has in life is the forbidden love affair she shares with Rahim. While Shaye struggles to keep secrets concerning her relationship, her friend Brenda’s problems are ones that aren’t as easy to hide. Strung out on heroin and pregnant, Brenda fights daily with the fact that she will soon be a teen mom by a man who does not want kids at all; especially ones that will be born addicted to heroin. The loss of innocence for these young ladies begins with bad choices and from a willingness to follow the actions of Nikki Bradley; the most experienced of the threesome. Streetwise and intelligent, Nikki has baggage of her own which lands her in a brothel in Miami to work off a debt she incurred under Marcus, one of the most notorious drug dealers in Virginia.
Three young girls in three struggles for survival which start a chain of events that changes all of their lives forever.
