A Nice Slice of African American Life with a Caribbean Flavor
5 July 2006 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Alma's owns a beauty salon, which is located in the first floor of her brownstone. Alma has to come to terms with her past as she struggles to keep her daughter from making the same mistake, she made some years ago. Her daughter, Rainbow, struggles with puberty (some may find it hard to believe, however, there are young girls that are that well developed in their early teens).

In the midst of Rainbow's struggle with puberty and it's social implications, Ruby, Alma's sister shows up unannounced. Wild and free Ruby changes both Alma and Rainbow as she encourages Alma to loosen up and Rainbow to follow her dreams. It is a nice movie.
