After meeting a man who promises to make her dreams come true, LaCrae decides to take the chance of a lifetime. She rebels against her mother and heads to New York City.
When Mae Dupuy's granddaughter shows up unannounced on the steps of her brownstone in Harlem, Mae opens her home to her. Mae knows all too well the price a young, ambitious girl like LaCrae could pay if she makes the wrong decision in the tough streets of an unforgiving city.
As LaCrae realizes that she's stepped into a world that requires far more than she bargained for, Mae shares her own tale of joyful love and unimaginable pain, hoping her journey steers LaCrae back onto the right path.
