Josiah “Thing” Seals and Kandi Bigelow are looking forward to graduating high school, but each of them have to face tough obstacles for their love to endure.
Josiah has to learn to stand up to his mother and end the mental, physical and sexual abuse he’s suffered at her hands. Looking for a way out, he begins to search for a real job, new apartment and a new walk with God. But being an eighteen year old young black man is not easy and for Josiah, he need to learn not to fall into the temptations that have led many youth astray not just for himself, but so that his little brother, Joshua won’t suffer the same fate.
Kandi’s done stealing … after successfully completing the terms of her probation, she’s looking forward to putting her pick pocketing and her sorry ex-boyfriend, Cortez behind. However, once her older sister returns from prison, she may need to do one last job to get them both out of a bind.
Can Kandi and Josiah beat the odds and see where their relationship will go, or will they both be stuck in situations that will end their relationship permanently?
