The golden girl, the rule-abiding rebel, the one who unknowingly
craves something more.
When fate brings the two girls together, life seemed to fall into place.
Until their future plans are shattered the moment someone leaves
drugs inside Max’s school locker.


While Max inevitably loses hope of escaping her new grim reality, Emily
