(mbc.net) A widow and single mom, Gina has moved from Chicago to Atlanta so that her daughter Vanessa, a piano prodigy, can attend a performing arts school.

Mother-in law Paulette and sister-in-law Darnelle live with them. The bills are paid by Gina's job at Jorge's high-end salon, but his obnoxious personality ultimately proves insufferable.

Gina quits her job and decides to get a place of her own, securing a loan with some resourceful tactics.

Situated squarely in the ghetto and featuring a revolving cast of eccentric characters, the shop's quirky employees provide a constant stream of witty banter.

Meanwhile the electrician who lives upstairs slowly wins Gina's heart.
