Raymond Simmons, is a cheating, no-good thug who couldn't be faithful to his longtime girlfriend, Tia, if his life depended on it. Just when Ray swears off all outside chicks, he meets a sexy bombshell named Nisha, and his born-again monogamy goes out the window. When he realizes he's gotten in too deep with Nisha, he tries to clean up his messy life before he loses Tia for good. Unfortunately, it's a little too late, and when Tia goes searching for answers of her own, the streets of Houston will overflow with a bloody vengeance.
When Nisha's honeymoon dreams fizzle and she sees Ray's true colors, she treks her way toward a fresh start in LA, where she meets a smooth talking pimp-in-disguise named Mack. Her lustful desire quickly works against her as she finds herself caught in between Mack and Major, two sworn enemies.
Major has big plans for a brutal revenge after the death of his sister, but what will happen once Mack unleashes his own plans of retribution? Lucci, a native New Yorker, is happy to answer the call of duty when Mack calls in a favor. Little does he know, his loyalty to Mack will face the ultimate test when El Loco, one of the biggest bosses of the East and South coast, gives him an ultimatum.
Kimmie, the exotically beautiful daughter of El Loco, has her own plans for testing the bonds of Lucci and Mack's friendship as she draws them into her dangerous triangle of lust. Blinded by her own desire, Kimmie commits the ultimate betrayal against her father, leaving her no other option to flee NY for the southern allure of Atlanta. Always a slave to desire, Kimmie quickly slips into a deadly affair with DeJuan, a smooth-talking, Bentley-driving pimp and hustler- turned pastor. Just as DeJuan gets knee-deep in her “heavenly essence,” his wife, Sasha makes a move to secure her spot as the last woman standing.
When El Loco receives word of the transgressions against his daughter, he unleashes an angel of death on all involved- and anyone else that gets in his way. Just as his vengeance is in full swing, he comes face-to-face with a forgotten seed planted long ago, and has to decide which piece of him is most worth saving. Will El Loco's reign come to an end when he turns his attention to collecting on a blood debt?
