When a recently released prisoner inherits her family house, a plot to regain it is triggered by her estranged family who are seeking vengeance for the violent crime she committed.

A prisoner with a history of violence inherits her family house once she’s released, but has to fight her bailiff family, who has disowned her, to get it back. In a bid to get rid of her, they take her into the family business, setting her up to re-offend, but things don’t go to plan when she proves more capable then they first thought, and they resort to another strategy: revenge.
