Read the synopsis for Abandoned Property:

Unresolved issues of being left behind and abandoned due to the lack of value in the REAL estate we call family and friends can turn our world upside down. This story is about the lives of several people who have been treated like property that has been unwilling to be possessed or even cared for.

Kori, Jerard, Darius, Jay, Layla, Karina, and Coco have something in common; they all have abandonment issues. Even though their issues of abandonment stem from some of the same situations, how they play out is different in nature. Whether it’s guilt and shame, a revolving door of relationships, daddy issues, attention seeking, insecurities and self-doubt, fear of being abandoned, or trust issues; they all allow their issues to manifest negatively in all of their relationships.

Are they doomed to repeat some of the same cycles of physical or emotional abandonment like being cast aside, deserted, discarded, neglected, shunned, and even rejected? Or will they go to the extreme opposite to ensure that the cycle ends with them?

It’s the final test for our favorite Freedom University Alums. Lives have been turned upside down as they left the comforts of campus life for the real world and all of the adventures that come with it. Although their lives have taken major turns changing the futures they dreamed of in college, life is good and relationships are strong.

Lena realizes how fast time flies when you are raising a child. It’s been two years since she decided to take time away from all her drama to find herself and focus on the child she was carrying. But the present finds her staring at images of Denise, Hollywood’s up and coming star and the love who got away. With her child away, Lena now has time to play. Will she finally move on to someone new, or truly go after the one she’s wanted all along.

Denise has learned that there is more to Hollywood than fame and fortune. The dark side of fame rears its ugly face as Denise’s star grows brighter and Farih’s starts to dim. All eyes are on this “It” couple, including the eyes of Lena. With the past reappearing in her life, Denise finds herself torn between loving the one who has given her the real, stable relationship she’s always wanted, and the chaotic love that her heart just doesn’t want to let go of.

Cooley always knew she would be a force to be reckoned with in the entertainment industry; but never in a million years did she think she would be in a committed relationship, and happy. Now managing two of the hottest up and coming lesbian stars in the world, her life is right on track – until a secret comes out that could derail all she’s worked for, and threaten her relationship and even more importantly, her friendships.

Misha pictured her life as a independent, jetsetter – not as a housewife, cooking, cleaning and running after a toddler. It’s amazing what people are willing to give up for love. Watching her ex live the life she pictured for herself, the temptation to pursue her dreams and revisit the life she abandoned might just get the best of her.

Carmen wants one thing, the perfect “royal wedding” to the love of her life Nic. While her friends live fabulously in Atlanta, she’s stuck in Memphis in a teaching job she despises. While Nic is perfectly happy with the average life they have created together, Carmen wants more. And her caviar wishes could destroy her relationship dreams.

The future is bright and sunny for the crew but there are storm clouds ahead filled with unfinished business from the past that could threaten all they have worked for in life and love. Their relationships and friendships have never been so vigorously tested. And as Carmen and Nic’s wedding approaches, will skeletons in their closets wreck the worlds they have created, or will everything finally come full circle?
