Francesca James and Shyla Weber have been best friends since high school. Their closeness and life’s difficult circumstances compelled them to raise their sons together as brothers.
Shy is a single mother who thinks she has it all together. She doesn’t need a man in her life, because her number one priority is her son, Malcolm. His life and success are her main focus. She wants to control everything in Malcolm’s life, believing that she knows best.
Deserted by her husband, Frankie constantly wavers between feelings of love and resentment towards her son DJ, who looks and behaves so much like his no good father. If she doesn’t do everything in her power to resolve her conflict, she could lose her son forever.
Malcolm and Darnell are two warm, loving young men who live complicated lives with their overbearing mothers.
Darnell is confused and directionless. He’s suffering from the abandonment of his father, and his mother’s hot and cold attitude with him. If he continues to make stupid choices, his life could be ruined before it gets started.
Malcolm has dreams of a career in movie production despite his mother’s objections. He’s determined to do what he wants no matter what.
Just as the small family begins to get their relationships back on track…everything changes.
Shy gives in to her attraction to her neighbor, Cameron, even though she can’t stand his daughter, Rumor.
With the addition of Cameron and Rumor, and the re-emergence of Frankie’s ex, Darnell Sr., tragedy strikes.
Suffering loss, despair, confusion and resentment, they must all learn forgiveness, or be destroyed by heartbreak.
