Deja moves on, but discovers her daughter Eleni (Simpson), who knows Sonny from school, is infatuated with the handsome teacher’s assistant. Deja experiences a myriad of emotions as she struggles to control her attraction to Sonny, protect her daughter’s heart and deal with her ex-husband Craig (Whitfield), who seems to think a reconciliation is on the horizon. Conflicted and uncertain, Deja finds herself in a complex love triangle. Will this tricky scenario bring her to the brink of heartbreak or set her on a path to a new beginning?
