After her mother's tragic death, Shayla is left to navigate her teenage years with little help from her neglectful playboy father. Shayla makes some risky choices and takes a job at Harlem's top strip club before she's even of legal age. She manages to make ends meet, but her luck runs out when she is raped and left for dead one night after work. Confused and scared, Shayla concocts a lie that leads to an arrest - even though the man convicted is innocent. Years later, Shayla will be forced to confront the lies she told. Will she ever be truly free from the demons of her past?
