Ghetto-born and bred, Winter’s family finally now lives on the wealthy side, what with her kingpin dad and all. Access to all the money and luxuries she could ever hope for, Winter develops a spoiled, privileged look on life and unhealthily uses it to her advantage.
“Now I realized that me and him were just alike. We were both born to win. And, when we were not winning, it was OK ‘cause we were busy planning to win.”
Unfortunately, what Winter must learn is that too much time on top doesn’t prepare you for the trip to rock bottom.
