This story concerns the tragedies that befall young Annie when her parents separate and her father remarries a witchy wife. Annie runs with a rough crowd, takes drugs, smokes pot and gets pregnant. She marries the father, divorces him. Spiraling down in self-pity she eventually lands in jail. Hitting rock bottom lets her see a way to turn her life around and find happiness, but it doesn’t last.
