When her friend needs a shoulder to cry on, she’s there. She doesn’t understand why people can’t do the same for her.
Angela es Fresh (the bad girl) is the bad girl gone good, or at least trying to go good. However, every time she tries to change, something holds her back.

Circumstances: some good, some bad and others we created by our own choices. Reckless Perfection reveals, through the lives of these characters, that all choices have consequences, not on just our lives but those around us.
