Trey, a mechanic, makes an annual $40,000 salary and his attorney wife, Carleena climbs the corporate ladder and advances to a six figure salary. Creating financial problems in their marriage, Trey becomes increasingly incompatible with his wife’s demanding needs because of the significant gap in their salaries and thus, the once yoked couple marriage crumbles and takes a downward spiritual and emotional spiral.
