Young real estate agent Clara Morales encouraged risky loans to her clients during the housing boom. She must now rescue her father's home from foreclosure-- a consequence of the loan she advised him to take.
Maria Jose 'Majo' Tonorio is a tough LA street poet who spits from the heart. After meeting a talented DJ she cuts her first demo under the guidance of a small time hustler more interested in promoting Majo's sexuality than her lyrics. Soon a major label and its strong-arm executive come calling. Convinced that a record deal will deliver much needed money for the family, Majo is suddenly faced with some stark choices. Does she accept the deal and turn her back on the friends who got her to the precipice of success or does she let a golden opportunity slip away. Written by
Amazing film! I am 54 years old and do not consider myself a fan of hip hop. But this film tears at your heart strings. I just can't stop thinking about it. Congratulations on a job well done. I certainly hope it makes it to the theaters for all to see. So glad I was able to enjoy it at Sundance! The characters in the story were vulnerable and love able, even though their imperfections were well defined. I was on the edge of my seat through the whole movie and am even wondering about changing my opinion of Hip Hop! Good cast, good directing and excellent crew all around. We will be seeing Gina Rodriguez again! Wow! I am happy to give this film a top review.
