Sherry's main objective is to re-establish a relationship with her young daughter Alexis (Ryan Simpkins), currently cared for by her brother Bobby (Brad William Henke) and his wife Lynnette (Bridget Barkan), who secretly wants to keep her. As Sherry battles to keep on the straight and narrow, she learns to play by her own rules, all the time aware that one wrong move could send her back to jail.
