Stepping into the big leagues, Cairo finds himself having to make a choice that will leave him second-guessing everything he once knew. Diving head first into the fast life, the teen quickly realizes that money is the motive, the only motive. No matter who had to be stepped on or crossed, it was merely a sacrifice made in order to come up. Desperate to keep his family’s head above water, Cairo falls deeper into the game under Wise’s watchful eye, not realizing the consequences that came along with it.
Blinded by the luxuries of the lifestyle of a hustler, he slowly loses himself to the ways of the street life and becomes oblivious to the trouble stirring up right under his nose. With a storm brewing, will the teen fold under pressure when he realizes that he’s at the center of a war? Or will losing the ones he cares about become the first sacrifice of many?
Barely escaping with her life, Sanaa just can’t seem to catch a break. Facing one problem after another, she finds her once blissful life, spiraling out of control. When her ex resurfaces, Sanaa will stop at nothing to protect her newfound happiness and salvage her own life. Wanting to protect her loved ones and save her relationship, she is left with no choice but to face her past head on, leaving her in a fight for her life.
When facing their problems on their own becomes too much, will they be able to depend on one another or will their troubles prove to be too overwhelming and cause the bond the young couple once shared to crumble?
