When car-jacking, inmate-murdering, bad-ass criminal Robin Sutherland, sits down for his parole hearing, he has no idea that he will be granted his greatest wish, and his worst nightmare. Instead of being granted 6 months of house arrest with his push-over sister Shirley, he is placed in the custody of her ball-breaking brute of a boyfriend, ex-Army Sargeant Chuck. Chuck hates Robin, Robin hates Chuck, Shirley hates Robin, Robin hates Shirley, but Chuck loves Shirley, and will do anything for her. Written by M. Pharaoh
