Life could not have dealt you a better hand. Then the deck of cards that you have had built your whole world upon, begins to fold. Your dream has become a nightmare, and you are starting to wonder if things are ever what they seem.
From an early age, Giselle (Gigi) forms a bond with a few girls from her neighborhood that share her good looks and her quest for the dollar bill. Shelby is bold, beautiful and a true fashionista, while Mo is gorgeous low key and smart. Simone, is drop-dead gorgeous, determined and driven. The local hustlers are always willing to spend their money on the girls, but after Gigi loses someone close to her to the game, she finds what she considers is a better way into a life of fabulosity. She marries what she deems the perfect man. He is fine, educated and legitimately wealthy. What more can she ask for?
