Tressa is a fly girl accustomed to the lavish lifestyle that Lucky, her possessive, deranged baby daddy, has provided for her. In order to keep her high standard of living, she has excused so many of his unforgivable actions. It is not until he pulls off the ultimate stunt that she realizes that no mink coat, car, house, or any amount of money is worth her peace of mind.
Tressa leaves everything behind, with the exception of her street savvy, and sets out to make a life of her own. It's not long before she finds herself making the transition from public figure to public assistance. Every day of her life seems like one drama-filled chapter after another, from baby daddy drama to backstabbing friends and various unforgettable men she sorts through and disposes of. At times she struggles and scrambles just to make ends meet, and other times she stands tall and holds her own.
