Imagine having to pay child support for a child you never fathered by a woman you never met. Parker and Roxanne Redman are desperate for a baby of their own, but neither knew Parker had already fathered a child. After Roxanne's third miscarriage, they're flabbergasted when Parker is arrested for non-payment of child support with an outstanding balance of fifty thousand dollars. The Redmans' friends, James and Serena, are in the final stages of a bitter divorce. James struggles to avoid his soon-to-be ex's volatile temper in hopes of maintaining a relationship with his six-year-old daughter. As James pays the mortgage on a house he was forced to leave, Serena continues her verbal and emotional attacks against him. Just when James thinks his nightmare is finally over, he learns his daughter is not his biological child. Lachez Baker is a ghetto-fabulous single mother of three who seems to have it all, thanks to money from her children's fathers. Her life is filled with designer clothes, endless parties, and a steady cash flow. In addition to the men's financial support, she's also running several money-making scams to help make ends meet. But soon, her world collides with the Redmans when Lachez is forced to face a judge and admit she willingly took part in paternity fraud.
