Synopsis/Details: 

Athi Fisher worked as a stripper alongside her aspiring actor and current bouncer husband Bubba Fisher for a vicious and powerful drug dealer, Joshua Gonzalez, in Atlanta. Athi reached a point where she could no longer tolerate the physical and emotional abuse from her boss and decided to become an FBI informant and turn him into the Feds.
Before the FBI arrested him, Joshua figured out it was Athi that betrayed him and he vowed he would come back and kill her. Feeling afraid for her and Bubba and wanting a chance to start clean so Bubba could pursue his acting dreams, they entered Witness Protection and changed their names to “Yadira and Chick Conway.”

For years they both did several odd jobs for money because Chick couldn’t get past the Hollywood “gatekeepers”. All the while Yadira has not only been terrified that Joshua would find a way to get to her but she has also been dealing with extreme PTSD from her traumatic abuse at the hands of Joshua. These feelings are increased when Joshua is unexpectedly released from Federal prison early.

Panicked and afraid for her and Chick’s life and frustrated with Chick’s lack of success in Hollywood, Yadira comes up with the only plan that makes sense to get them enough money to flee their problems. She pimps out Chick to Hollywood elites to advance his career. Her plan seems to work for a bit as Chick’s star begins to rise...until Joshua finally catches up with her and is ready to enact his revenge...
