Now, Mia cares for both her newborn baby and Spider. Tethered to a low wage job to pay the bills, she's hoping he will make a commitment. Spider, himself underemployed, remains resistant. This causes tension between the two, and matters are only made worse by family secrets, grudges, and lies. Arguments get more personal, even after Spider lands an exciting job in the music industry. Meanwhile, "good friend" Romell is offering a shoulder (and a lot more) to lean on.
What ensues is a love triangle with a unique twist, two men vying for a young lady with a baby. Mia fights to salvage her relationship but pressure from family and Romell's not-so-private attraction may be more than she can handle. Ultimately, Mia Love must discover for herself whether the path to true happiness lies in gaining the approval of others or loving God and self.
