Specialist Marissa Poe is a white girl from a small in Idaho. At this point in her life, she's sure of three things; she dates only black men, she's getting out of the army in two weeks, and she's attending Penn State in the fall. But when her latest boyfriend treats her less that what she is worth and the army throws a monkey wrench in her academic plans, Marissa goes through a transformation that will change her life forever.
Elizabeth Shupe is from Louisiana. She's a civilian and an army wife. She and Kayla are closer than close, but she can barely stand Marissa and no one knows why. From Liz's point of view, there's something about Marissa she just doesn't trust. Liz is ecstatic to find out she's pregnant, but that joy is short lived when her husband is deployed to Iraq, and she's forced to deal with a threatened pregnancy alone.
It's only by facing their past and demons that the women learn to overcome their shortcomings.
