Sherry Laguna is a protective mother to her only child, Sienna. A mother’s love can’t go much deeper. Sherry strongly believes that Sienna’s live-in boyfriend, Jeremy, is engaging in unfinished business with a woman who has recently shown up from his past. The problem is that this woman brings with her a daughter that Jeremy had originally been told was not his child.
Sienna, loving Jeremy the way she does, commits to the arrangement and decides to love her man through it no matter what. Their situation isn’t the most desirable, and of course Sherry feels her daughter deserves better. The last thing she wants is for Sienna to end up on the short end of the stick and heartbroken in the process. If she can save her daughter from heartache, then any “snooping” she has to do would be worth it. With much reluctance Sherry sets her sights on Pandora’s Box.
Brooklyn enlists Oscar to help Ms. Laguna find the truth and bring closure to a highly tumultuous situation. The moment Brooklyn and Oscar become involved in the case, matters quickly escalate. But before the group at Pandora’s Box can deliver confirmation of Sherry’s suspicions, another unlikely source beats them to the punch. Chaos ensues and what happens next will permanently change many.
Love, deceit, and murder, are all elements that flow through this story.
