features an exceptional cast, including Lou Diamond Phillips, Edward James Olmos and the late legendary musician Jenni Rivera in her final on-screen performance. Fueled by a fierce hip-hop score, the film also heralds the arrival of Gina Rodriguez in the electrifying title role as Filly Brown, a young Los Angeles hip-hop artist who percolates with the raw energy of hope sprung from desperation. When a shady record producer offers her an opportunity at rap stardom, she faces some daunting choices. A record contract could be the ticket out for her struggling family. But taking the deal means selling out her talent and true friends.
