They say life consist of many gambles. We all have to make decisions.
Coming up in the bottom of Southeast Raleigh, street knowledge on how to “get money” and become a “ride or die” chick to a boss drug kingpin is the only world to which Fallon Stevens can relate. With her mother and grandmother dead and gone, and her only sibling behind prison bars, the young and pregnant Fallon gets her final reality check when she is involved in a home invasion. After visualizing death through the traumatic experience of having a pillowcase placed over her head, the tiny feet kicking her stomach walls helps her to mercifully conclude that the time for her to change paths is now.
Exactly one week after the near death robbery incident, Fallon runs into her childhood best friend -- and very successful college graduate -- Regina Moran, who reappeared in Raleigh to visit her mother for the first time in years. With no one to turn to and without a word exchanged between the two in five years, Fallon swallows her pride and apologizes to Regina while reaching out to rekindle their friendship. Emotions pour at their first woman to woman conversation. By God’s Grace, Regina opens her arms and residence to Fallon, just like their friendship never ended.
Fallon finds new meaning in the word "womanhood" when Regina’s life, surprisingly, takes a heavy unexpected blow from reality. Regina’s family support and plentiful finances that she always gloated about are affected, and the surrounding issues only add negativity to the history of her and Fallon’s friendship. This massive switch in life issues and advisory position puts an uncomfortable distance between the two women. Envy, jealousy, confusion, bitter disagreements, and underlying emotions come out during the unfortunate disconnection.
Will the two women's friendship survive all of the secrets, personality fronts, lies, envy, and change between them? And most importantly, will they remain safe from all of the haunting ghosts of their individual pasts?
They say life is a gamble, and this story is a prime example
