When 16-year-old Teresanna sees her step-father beat her mother to death, she runs, and runs again, leaving the fearful adolescent behind to become "Tanya," a sophisticated and artistic stripper, better known as "The Lady Tigre." But inside, she is still a frightened and innocent child, still running from the man who knows the only way for him to be safe, is if the witness is dead.
Will a long-haired trucker named, Kyle Benton, be a man she can trust, at last? Or will Tanya's fears return to destroy their love?
