JoJo, a Filipino-American, poseur gangsta-pimp, thinks he hears his call to the streets and carjacks Vance, a mysterious traveling perfume salesman who fancies cowboy hats. In tow is Devaun, JoJo's best friend, who tries desperately to protect Vance from JoJo, and JoJo from the law. But no one is safe from JoJo's impulses, as the motley trio hits the road to Nashville, and slowly succumb to an escapist adventure that takes them further away from JoJo's reality, but closer to Vance's reality. When JoJo discovers the truth about his reluctant road companion, the trip takes a turn that leads the three of them to truth, love, and the dirty underbelly of the Nashville country music scene. Written by Steve Mallorca

Creative, Outrageous and Fun!
6 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It is rare these days to go to a movie and see something truly unique. At my first viewing of SJK, that's exactly what I got. In this outrageous story, I cared about the characters and enjoyed their adventure. Everyone can relate to trying to find themselves. Everyone can relate to heartbreak and thinking about what could have been. But can you relate to all of these things happening at the same time in the same car? It takes a truly different and unique mind to smash cultures together the way Steve Mallorca did for SJK. The music was written by Mr. Mallorca and the theme song is set at just a perfect pace for the movie. I Strongly Recommend seeing SJK.
