Having recently arrived from Trinidad and full of fairy tale fantasies, 15-year-old Layla is quickly swept off her feet by self-styled gang leader Troy. However, in the dog-eat-dog world where being Troy’s girl buys her envy as well as status, social outsider Shaun becomes her only true friend. When Troy discards her, Layla is left in ruins. She vows to rebuild herself as a hardened player in order to win him back and Shaun becomes a pawn in her game. Soon the forces she has set in motion are escalating out of control into a fatal love triangle.
