Movie Info

Spunky Talia makes her extreme displeasure known when her stepfather returns after an unexplained year-long absence. She suspects him of molesting her younger sister, but their mother is blinded by her mate's paycheck. So when her stepdad orders Talia to ditch her beloved dog, a docile pit bull, Talia and Kim take off for a nearby housing project where Talia plans to lie low with her dog. Hiding out gets complicated for Talia, when she hooks up with an interracial group of four crooked friends who steal the dog with an eye toward selling it back to her.more
