What happens when your past just won't let you go?
Jocelyn Rodriguez is an independent and outspoken young lady known to have a hard character, ready to rip someone apart with words - and sometimes more. Her life was seemingly normal until college, where she meets a young man by the name of Brad J. Williams, Jr.

During her unexpected journey of remembrance and reemergence of her past, she deals with friends who turn out to be enemies, a rough-and-tumble trio known as the Soul Brothers, and, ultimately she meets Antoni Vega, the one person who seems to be able to show her love and admiration, in spite of her troubles.
