Storyline

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 Anonymous

Wonderful Performance
22 April 2013 | by nemod12See all my reviews

I always found IMDb a serious site but i begin to loose sight of that.

Of course that's not the flaw of the site or the makers/owners. But the sort of people that give a rating to a film or show doesn't say anything to me anymore.

Just read the handful of reviews on this and don't look at this absurd rating. This film has soul and emotion and beauty and art in it.

Don't gonna spoil anything. Just please , watch it. it's a great film with a warm hart.

Very good performances from all the actors. Thus i also do not share the opinion from the end rating so far.
