"I was only 13 years old when I got pregnant with you. Your father was 15. I have been a single mom for 3 years now, because your dad is not here."

Those are the first words of the letter that Latisha writes to her son in this short documentary. Latisha (16) lives in a foster home with Jayvano. She is surrounded by social workers. They tell her how to be a good mother. But Latish doesn't want their help. Are Latisha's love for her son and her efforts enough to prevent the social workers to take away Jayvano?
