Taught by her drug-addict mother to get hers by any means necessary, Tionna's heart is cold, but she holds a warm place in it for Duhan, the father of her two sons, her on-again-off-again boyfriend since they were teenagers, her knight in shining armor. But with Dunham behind bars and everything she loves seized, she finds herself starting over in the same neighborhood that she swore she'd never return to. With her best friends, Gucci, Boots, and Tracy, she finds herself rediscovering her old life and suddenly begins to wonder if she's really cut out to be a prisoner's wife.
