Young Barbadian university student Licia Small doesn't know it yet, but she's about to find out. Conservative, 'good-girl' Licia has a happy life with her parents, but this is quickly snatched away from her when she loses her mother and learns the ugly truth about her father. Life becomes even more complicated for Licia when her desperate circumstances and the people she meets test her ability to stay true to her positive goals, morals and values.
