The story of four women whose lives are entangled by physical and mental abusive relationships, stemming from boyfriends, husbands, mothers, fathers, as well as step-fathers, drawn together by one neighborhood in Sugar Hill and one motive—survival.
Nicie is violated as a young girl by three young thugs and then forced to watch the brutal murder of her boyfriend. Amanda pursues love from a man who manipulates her and eventually is led into a crack life. Denise fights a powerful entrapment in her marriage unlike any that is conceivable. And finally, Natalia witnesses death after death of her family members while never establishing love from her parents. The tragedy is that these four women mirror each other in psychological trauma.
The brand. The name. The look. The Women of Sugar Hill.
