This big-city drama looks at a black woman’s experiences dealing with her difficult mother, impending motherhood, and a career of five-finger discounts at the department store where she works. She gets in with the wrong crowd and plans a big score... but things go wrong. This is passable entertainment with a promising life on cable, but it doesn’t do anything new to merit the big-screen experience.
