Plot

After around 12 years together, Ashley and Miles face their greatest challenge yet: Him going to jail. This is really bad for Ashley since they were just getting their s*** together. Luckily, however, Miles’ mother, Rainey, and sister Trish have a place where Ashley and Sean, Ashley and Miles’ son, can stay.

The problem is with that is Rainey, while nice, isn’t much for enforcing rules and boundaries and Trish? Oh, she takes full advantage of that. Such as having her friends in barely-there clothes to post onto Instagram in the living room and exposing Sean to his first pair of breasts, which weren’t his mother’s. But, this is Ashley’s life now, and she has to make the best of it until she can do better.
