Love doesn't come easy - especially for China. With her family out of the picture, China must rely on her friends instead. But friendship does not always withstand the struggles of the streets. Tragedy strikes China's life again and again, knocking her support and hope for happiness out from under her. That's when she meets Black. Just as things are looking up for China, Black's hustlin' ways and short temper keep her from finding the security she craves. Hustler after hustler falls through her life, and China doesn't know who to trust. Will she find the love and the family she has been longing for? Or will she be tossed around like a CHINA DOLL her whole life?
