Riley, a young transient with an abusive past, strives for companionship. Jason, her ex-boyfriend, reaches out to Riley when he and his wife can't conceive. They sleep together, and Riley gets pregnant. Stuck in an abusive relationship with her current girlfriend Desiree, Riley pursues Jason to have the family he's always wanted. 'Good People' is a story of desperation and self-preservation, where lies are the currency of happiness.
