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.

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.
