Henry is a hood-with-a-heart who refuses to kill. Grace's life is ruled by sex and Jesus.

It's only a matter of time before Honey catches up with the fugitive lovers. Honey knows he'll easily catch the fugitive lovers. But will they still have the diamonds? And what will love, or money, drive them to?show more
