Having embraced her deepest fantasies in an all-or-nothing game with Todd, Allison struggles to regain her composure when he leaves her heartbroken and alone. She's determined to play the hand she was dealt, which means holding her head high and keeping up appearances for the sake of her family's expectations.

She's ready to own every part of herself, including her darkest desires, even if she must do so without the help of the man who first set her fantasies free.
