Cree, having given up on her marriage and longing the life she could've had if she'd followed her passion, she's suddenly given a Pandora's box of an opportunity to become a singer with instant fame. This journey, however, takes a quick and perilous turn when she's hunted by kidnappers and her husband is the suspect.
In this thriller, Cree has but a small window and the help of a few characters who are just as driven to determine their own fate. While fighting for her life Cree is finding out just why a man who can have anything money can buy, and any woman he wants, sees so much value in her.
