A real life #MeToo story without the ulterior motives, The Women of Sugar Hill tells a story of four women whose lives are entangled by physically and mentally abusive relationships, stemming from boyfriends, husbands, mothers, fathers, as well as step-fathers, drawn together by one neighborhood called Sugar Hill and one motive—survival. Nicie is violated as a young girl by three young thugs and then forced to watch the brutal murder of her boyfriend. Amanda pursues love from a man who manipulates her and eventually is led into a crack life. Denise fights a powerful entrapment in her marriage unlike any that is conceivable. And finally, Natalia witnesses death after death of her family members while never establishing love from her parents and being sold sexually by her daddy. The tragedy is that these four women mirror each other in psychological trauma.
The brand. The name. The look. The Women of Sugar Hill.
