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

Excellent movie! A must see!
3 October 2013 | by See all my reviews

Great movie! Excellent acting and story line! I give it a 10. The Olmos did it again!

This movie had me on the edge of my seat hoping things would work out for Filly.

It showed how much discrimination there still is in this country.

Really sad what drugs can do to a mother's judgment. Drugs clouding a persons everything and amongst that, she put her own daughter's life in jeopardy.

I was really glad to see that talent runs in the Olmos family. Like father like son!

Watching this movie is a must. I need to buy it and add it to my movie library!
