The odds are against seventeen-year-old Faith Hopkins. After being raped by an unknown assailant, she becomes pregnant. Though poor and young, Faith is determined to be a responsible mother. But she is forced into an early delivery when her abusive and alcoholic mother, Eunique, accidentally pushes Faith down a flight of stairs.
Waking up in the hospital, Faith discovers she had undergone an emergency Caesarean section and is now a new mother to a baby girl, whom she names Destiny. Her troubles are far from over as she lapses into a coma from a brain injury suffered during the fall. Once released from the hospital, Faith relies on a few friends for support.
Faith evolves as a mother, and her love for her daughter never waivers; she will protect Destiny at any cost. Faith fears her attacker will return, but because she didn't see his face, she doesn't know where the danger lies. He could be closer than she thinks.
