June Street takes place in New York City and Brooklyn. Faith and Joy are two estranged sisters. The Benton Family adopted them after their parents committed suicide. Joy never recovered from the loss of her parents and ended up living in the streets, eventually becoming a prostitute. Faith became a police officer and spent years searching for her sister. When she finally found her in a brothel, she brought her sister home to stay with her family. But her husband was reluctant to have a strange lady in his house. Evan decided that he didn?t want their daughter Estie being in Joy?s presence, so he had her stay with relatives, which Faith strongly objected to. Eventually, Joy left her sister?s home and returned to her life as a prostitute. Faith kept trying to track her down until finally, she and her fellow officers located Joy among a group of prostitutes and pimps. Gunfire erupted. Faith frantically tried to protect her sister from the gunfire, but she failed. And Joy died in her arms.
