Surrounded by drugs and alcohol, at age 8 Ashley becomes a ward of the state. She is separated from her brother and shuffled between the homes of extended family members where she bares witness to prostition, drug dealing and her own mother’s overdose.. As a teenager Ashley seeks stability and unexpectedly finds it in the muslim hip-hop community. Ashley is drawn to the restrictions of the Islamic faith and believes these will prevent her from following in her family’s footsteps. But this newfound stability is also the cause of a growing rift between herself and her estranged brother..
