With beauty and brains to match, she is destined for greatness when she plans to attend an HBCU in the fall, leaving the dangerous neighborhood streets that she’s been accustomed to all her life.

Hurt and filled with revenge, Markita, and her friends, Alexis (Atiya Johnson) and Kenya (Davina Works) plan to do whatever is necessary to find Marlowe’s killer. This plan snowballs when the girls find a way to earn fast money and take over the same streets Markita once vowed to move away from.
