Great movie, best low budget film I've seen.
17 January 2002 | by pamgoffSee all my reviews

The movie was great. With only 2.7 million dollars for budget, director, writer Mark W. Allen did and incredible job. Casting Nia Peeples and Antonio Fargas was the best thing he could have done. The brought Heather (Peeples) and Shoop (Fargas) a jazz musician ready to fade out of the lime light. New comer Cameron Smith does an excellent job playing Adam Goodnight, Shoop's music promoter and Heather's boyfriend.

I recommend that anyone who loves a movie for the acting ability and for an amazing story, this is the movie to watch.
