verdict
Unlikeable characters. Confusing parallel plots. Feels twice as long as it really is. Some good acting performances hidden in the muck.
genre Drama
synopsis “Majo” Tonorio, a.k.a. Filly Brown, is a raw, young Los Angeles hip-hop artist who spits from the heart. When a sleazy record producer offers her a crack at rap stardom, Majo faces some daunting choices. With an incarcerated mother, a record contract could be the ticket out for her struggling family. But taking the deal means selling out her talent and the true friends who helped her to the cusp of success.
