Overview

Lyv is a curvy and optimistic girl who can't wait to finish high school and run away from her drunk mother. Emotional abuse is what that woman dishes out best in the family's Long Island diner.
Lyv's only support is her best friend Ten, a passionate guy from the right side of the track. But Ten has already moved on to college so there's only so much he can do to help her get through her senior year and then he'll soon be going away to study in Europe for a term.
When the Christmas holidays come around, Ten takes Lyv out for a night on the town.
That's how Lyv meets Alexander, a talented rising rock star. Spark flies during this chance encounter.
Just before the start of his first tour, Alexander shows Lyv how to welcome the New Year with a hot and heavy night of passion.
Life is finally looking up for Lyv ... That is, until she finds out she's pregnant.
With the two guys in her life out of reach, a baby on the way and an abusive mother, Lyv has some tough calls to make. Can she make the right ones?
