Storyline

Chantel Mitchell (Ariyan Johnson), a hip, articulate, black high-school girl in Brooklyn, is determined not to become "just another girl on the IRT" (the IRT is one of NYC's subway lines). She dreams of medical school, a family, and an escape from the generational poverty and street-corner life her friends seem to have accepted as their lot. But personal and sexual challenges confront Chantel on her way to fulfilling these dreams. Written by Fred Goodridge

Ms.Johnson is talented and beautiful!!
18 July 2001 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This is a story of success and failure in the BIG CITY! Ariyan Johnson a talented actress shows what a strong black women really is! All of the performances are great! But it is Ms. Johnson that truly shines! After seeing her for a brief time on "The Steve Harvey Show" a few years back she has disappeared! Rent this film and get a real taste of life in the BIG CITY!*****
