Description: Niecy is a saleswoman for a large department store. She is also the best "booster" in town and can waltz surreptitiously out of any clothing store with whatever top-line item her black-market customers desire. Her high-rolling activities put her at the center of her social circle, but she fails to find devotion from her toughest customer-her mother Elaine. A survivor of an abusive childhood, Elaine attempts to feed her damaged, embittered heart with an endless stream of material finery. She turns to her daughter to feed her cravings and Niecy, desperate to soothe her wounds and gain her love, willingly takes on higher and higher stakes in pursuit of the best that money can buy.
