Despite their mother’s issues, Tara wants to live the fast life with Deon, a notorious drug lord who reigns over the area. On the other hand, socially awkward Tatiana’s dislike for people and passive aggressive nature tends to result in some tricky situations.

Still, Tatiana is determined to help her. Can Tara be pulled away from it all or will it be too late?
