Twenty-one-year-old Colleen Perkins wants nothing more than to move out of the 'hood in Newark, New Jersey, and start a new life with her drug-dealing boyfriend, Daryl, in Atlanta. But when Daryl is murdered in a drive-by shooting, her life spirals out of control. Grief-stricken and penniless, she starts working nights as an exotic dancer but still dreams of owning a home in Georgia.
