However, things fall apart when Tessa is arrested for alcohol abuse. Barlow forces her into treatment, and she vows never to speak to him again. With the support of Auntie Elisi and grandfather Arnold’s gift of Ámashitum, a wild horse, Barlow may be able to help Tessa again- that is, as long as her gang-involved boyfriend, Parker Heslah, doesnt succeed in scaring him off. Parker and his crew have been running guns for ‘Cowboy’ Jack Brie, her mother’s ex-boyfriend, and Tessas childhood abuser. Soon Brie reenters Tessa’s world, threatening her family, especially her baby half-sister, Ce Ce. Now Barlow’s trying to step in, unaware that Brie sees him coming.
