Plot & Details

A rising Los Angeles hip-hop artist faces some difficult decisions in this gritty musical drama. "Majo" Tonorio (Gina Rodriguez) has been struggling for as long as she can remember. With her mother behind bars, she knows that developing her skills behind the microphone could be her ticket to a better life. Then, one day, a local record producer offers Majo the opportunity of a lifetime. Rapping under the name "Filly Brown," Majo steps into the studio and starts to flow. But when Filly is pushed to betray the friends who have always lifted her up, she realizes that the price of fame may be more than she's willing to pay.
