Maria Jose ‘Majo’ Tonorio is a tough L.A. 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? (2K DCP Presentation)
