Monique "Money" Matters (Terri Abney) is balancing precariously on the brink of her adolescence and her relationship with her mother Pamela (Aunjanue Ellis Ray, Men of Honor), is just as unsteady. As mother and daughter argue, desperate to understand each other, the roles of parent and child become clear and then confused once more. Throughout this journey of comprehension, a family secret is discovered: a secret which, like a wound, has become exacerbated by years of neglect and regret. Money's commute to her Catholic school takes her far from her derelict neighborhood and her difficult home life: yet in this alien world she feels just as much of an outcast. However, when she befriends a sympathetic neighborhood girl, their friendship develops in ways that will push all boundaries.
