PlotEdit

Crystal is a beautiful yet fragile girl in her early twenties. But something dark and brooding burns inside her and she fights to hold it back. She falls for the charms of the equally beautiful bad boy and criminal, Roman. He lures her into a life of “sin.” And she follows him. But when that life turns deadly, she regrets her choice. One day she wakes up and realizes that Roman has turned her into a monster. She is now trapped in a life she cannot escape. Until she inadvertently finds a way out through a young nobody named Jeremiah, who works for Roman as a driver. She manages to “escape” from Roman through a foolish kidnapping plot that goes wrong. Jeremiah and Crystal subsequently begin a dangerous love affair and devise a crazy plan that can make her human again. But Roman sends his cold-blooded henchman, Bill, to hunt them down. Crystal is now faced with a deadly choice: she can kill Jeremiah to live, or follow an impossible plan that can turn her soul human again, so that she can be with the man with whom she has fallen in love.
