Chase Smith (Siergio) is an aspiring actor, hopeful and hungry to make it big, who finds himself between a rock and a crazy place. He is ambitious, talented and though he is an alpha male to perfection…he’s got ‘female-problems’. Tracy (Jameelah Mullen), his mother is a recovering heroin addict. An addict since he was nine, she is recently released from rehab…again. Tracy attempts to mend the family she once abandoned out in the cold as she hunted for that ‘Snow’. Then the love of his life Ava (Ayanna) has returned from NYC after a failed try as a recording artist. If sex were a drug, then he is her secret addiction. Now, there’s the Julia (Olivia Crosby) situation. Julia, his self-appointed girlfriend, conspires to get Chase to put a ring on. She’s fiance-focused, baby-mama-ready and has made her way ever so close to diverting Chase off course. All he really wants is success, true love and a healthy family. This brings us to two questions. Can he survive these circumstances before his dream becomes a nightmare? Or, has he already awakened to discover that reality like karma is a (rhymes with witch)!
