Borrowed Life Synopsis
Melissa feels trapped, being married to what she considers her ‘slow’ husband. She gets even angrier when her younger friend and neighbor buys property, while they are still being held back by her husband’s “poverty mentality.”
She eventually tries to “invest” behind her husband’s back; however when the politician from whom she buys prime land demands for more than she can give, Melissa finds herself thrown into a web of secrets, and nothing could have prepared her for the downward spiral her life gets into, as her unrelenting quest to move on up turns deadly.
