Dime is only looking for someone to care for her, to care about her. When she finds herself staying with Daddy, Brandy, and L.A., she finally feels something like family. Even as she is groomed and then put to work as a prostitute, she is convinced that she is finally loved. Then the introduction of a much younger girl to their “stable” makes her realize that she has to do something to break the cycle.
