At 21 years old, Turk had platinum albums, money was abundant, and he had fallen in love with his new girlfriend, Erica. But only two months after meeting Erica, Turk’s life fell apart when he was involved in a shootout with police at his home.Four years after his release, Turk and his wife Erica are struggling to save their marriage from Turk’s deep-seated paranoia stemming from the shooting and his fear that his former acquaintances are determined to get revenge. Iyanla also works with Erica to help her find her identity, which she has lost sight of through the multiple traumas she has suffered since she first met Turk. Ultimately, Iyanla works to uncover the layers of trauma in both of their lives that have prevented them from moving forward.
