Eight-year old Samantha is a beautiful, biracial girl who has an adoring father, Grayson, a baby brother, Tavis, who worships her, wonderful grandparents and aunt, Carol. What is missing is the affection and love from her mother, Tanya, who struggles to love anyone even herself. Samantha is confused as to why her loving father would abandon his family, leaving their mother sole custody, the one person who never showed love or affection to her or Tavis. Snatched from the safety of their upper middle class home, loving father, grandparents, and their Aunt Carol, Samantha helplessly watches as her and Tavis’ lives take a tragic downward spiral.
