The recently “cleaned up” General Oaks Housing Projects still has an undersurface of drugs, prostitutes, pushers and violence. But it’s the only home that bi-racial teen mom, Chrysta Perry, knows. At nineteen, she lives with her stern grandmother, Ms. Jane and has three interests, men, money and “doing hair”.
Church is no longer in the picture for neighbor, Janice Rivers, a twenty-eight year old ex- soloist and mother of two. The reclusive Janice moved into General Oaks following several beatings, handed out by her husband.
Finally, Kimberly Mayes has just moved in around the corner. At twenty-three, she has always been headstrong and ambitious; now she finds herself newly widowed and raising three children under the age of five alone.
Each of these three women has big dreams and knows that they will never be realized with their current paychecks. After a chance meeting brings them together, they form an unbreakable bond and become Millionaire Ghetto Moms.
