Donte can be tough, mouthy and arrogant and hates authority, but he's crazy about his young wife Chlo and was delighted when they got married. He's forgiven her for her unfaithfulness, wants to be a great husband and goes out of his way to prove it. He's also a budding entrepreneur, even if this isn't always on the right side of the law, and persuades Chlo they're making enough money to go it alone in a flat of their own. However, he finds out that maxing out credit cards isn't the way forward, and he's in trouble, especially so when he finds out there's going to be another mouth to feed before long.
