SYNOPSIS: We follow Sugar’s extraordinary, exhausting life from innocence
to victim to triumph. Sugar runs away from her previous life only to find herself caught in the web of drugs, sex, and money. Lost, she slips into an abyss. Sugar finds herself tested by the men who own the club, the patrons who frequent the establishment, and by the girls who work there. And, by Sugar’s own moral compass. Her father, Mac, searches for her hoping to get beyond their past and help her have a future. She meets a young boy, Wild, who helps her find her way. While bleak and seemingly trapped, Sugar finds hope and herself.
