Dream Nelson is a girl with the perfect family: Her father is a high school principal and her mother is an educator as well. Dream herself is a middle school teacher, who has one flaw;she loves bad boys--thugs.
Jamal Stewart is a tall, attractive ex con who is released from prison with nothing, but he promises that he will be rich again, because while he didn't have any money, he still had his drug connection in California. Jamal navigates himself to the top of the drug world and this affords him the life of luxury, cars, condos, expensive jewels and the drop dead gorgeous Dream Nelson. When Jamal meets Dream he wanted her at any expense and he knew he would do anything to get her, but there was one problem, Dream is in a relationship with another convict. After much convincing Dream gives Jamal a chance and the two become a item.
Dream knows that Jamal's lifestyle is dangerous and tries to steer him away from the streets, but it's not enough convincing. Dream's family and friends warn her that being with a Big Drug Dealer is bad news but against her family and friends warnings Dream sticks by her man even when she learns the FEDS are on his trail.
