Everything works in her favor. From working her way to being the Editor for the New York Times to finding love along the way in the form of Luke, a trust fund baby, FaNelli has it all. But, the more she paves her way to being successful, the more dirt of her past she tosses behind, with the hope of keeping it buried.
