Set in the affluent community of Buckhead, Atlanta, the story follows Dr. Joyce Carmichael (Dawn Richard), a talented, yet introverted surgeon at Sinai Hospital, who is struggling with the fact that she is still single despite all her professional successes. Joyce's strict Christian upbringing is a constant source of internal conflict for her, and limits the men she dates. However, upon a chance encounter with handsome Investor Darrin Wethington (Robert Ri'chard), Joyce immediately begins a whirlwind romance with the wealthy businessman and entrepreneur. It isn't long before Joyce begins to explore her own sexual fantasies, and convinces Darrin to join her in S&M sex. This leads them into further and further exploration into this world, which is traditionally considered taboo in the conservative and upscale black community of Buckhead.
