Eighteen year old college student Tiara Bynum is as pretty as a princess and just as spoiled. Her castle in the Harlem housing project where she live with her younger sister Jo Jo and her doting father Reggie. Her fiefdom is the legion of men at her beck and call every time she snaps her perfectly manicured fingers. Reggie a former professional gambler who was abandoned by his wife would do anything for his daughters, even if it means jeopardizing the family finances in favor of his girls' material happiness. Blindly determined to strike out on her own at any cost, Tiara lashes out against those who love her most. Yet the choices she makes, based on the way she was raised, threaten to destroy not only Tiara, but her entire family.
