Nine women are the central characters who share their lives and experiences. Each woman is looking for different things in their lives. Some are acquaintances, some are not. But all of them are brought together through crisis, heartbreak and support which ultimately allows them to find commonality and understanding for issues that affect women, and women of color in particular.
