Muriel doesn't have the option to cool her life down to manageable chaos. She's juggling a high pressure job, her extended family, and a deepening romance with Calvin, an advocate for troubled youth. And with heroin deaths epidemic throughout Philly, she's got her hands full stopping a related killing spree that's taking out gang members and innocent victims alike. ICED.
