An urban thriller.

She's also working as a high end escort under her stepfather's control.
As the stepfather's demands increase, Shya sees no choice but to kick up her plan to squirrel away enough money to win custody of her brothers.

More tragedy ensues as Shya gets caught stealing from the wrong person.
Can she save her family with bodies dropping all around her and a killer closing in? Will she lose everything for the pursuit of money? Can she keep her head held high in the face of so much adversity?
