While attending college in Cape Town, Melea Martin loses her scholarship and must find money to pay for the rest of her semester. Searching for a way to honor her recently deceased mother and speak out as a dancer and inspire the community around her, Melea rents a failing theater in order to put on a Hip-Hop Romeo and Juliet performance. But much like the Capulets and Montagues, conflicts between cast members threaten to bring the whole performance to a halt...

During a scene where Melea is telling the dancers (cast) about the true story of Romeo and Juliet, she says, "During one of the fights, Romeo ends up getting killed by Juliet's bad ass cousin Tybalt. Eventually, Romeo gets run out of town and that makes things much worse." Romeo is not killed at this time, it is in fact Mercurio who is killed by Tybalt. Melea says the wrong name. See more
