Description
Yoshi is young, fine and larcenous. She lives her life playing on men's hearts as well as their pockets. Billy is at the end of her rope with men and secretly seeks comfort in the arms of other women, until she meets a man who makes her re-evaluate her feelings. Reese is an around-the- way chick, trying to keep up with the Jonses. There's a revolving door on her bedroom as she tries to find the love she always felt was missing. Her promiscuity leaves her pregnant.
