Synopsis

Hyuna is a tough, egocentric woman who has anger management issues unlike her friend Derk who is timid, way too kind and lacks the needed spice to survive in this day and age. Despite their contradicting personalities they also have a lot in common: both are living in an environment that they want to escape from. In Derk’s case it’s an environment linked to criminality and pressure to follow up his dad who is an infamous gangleader. As for Hyuna that environment is one of abuse, her dad mistreats her mother and even uses physical violence against her and Hyuna. While Derk is determined to proof to his dad that he is worthy enough to become the next leader of the gang, Hyuna is sick of waiting and takes action in order to protect her mother and escape from her dad. Derk and Hyuna support each other but what Hyuna doesn’t know is that he is keeping secrets from her which will lead to very unfortunate events..

Derk encourages Hyuna to approach her good friend Logan who is also a gangleader for a paid task. Logan makes an appealing proposal offering her money she can use to move out of the house with her mother and a chance to take revenge on her dad. She decides to agree with his proposal and in the most crucial moment they get confronted with their weaknesses. One of them overcomes it, the other one doesn’t.
