With a mother in prison and a father struggling to provide for his daughters, Majo knows that a record contract could be her family's ticket out.

Drama - This is an independent, music-themed drama aimed at the young Latino
and urban markets. There are some familiar faces here such as Lou
Diamond Phillips, Edward James Olmos, and the late singer Jenni
Rivera, but this is carried by the more unknown actors. Constant
language as well as violence and drug use make the film inappropriate
PROFANITY: Over 30 F-words; over 30 S-words; a number of others. SEX/NUDITY: Brief clothed sensuality. VIOLENCE: Fighting and beatings. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Alcohol, tobacco, marijuana. ACTION: None. COMEDY: Occasional comic lines.
USA TodayFull Review Above Average The film strives to be inspiring in its chronicle of Majo Tonorio, aka Filly Brown (Rodriguez), an aspiring Los Angeles hip-hop artist. Rodriguez is engaging, smoothly blending a street-wise quality with a vulnerable aura. A nimble rapper, she's more convincing than many of the cast members. Unfortunately, the film is marred by a story, situations and stereotypical characters that strike all-too-familiar chords.
