Plot Synopsis

At 16 and already a mother, Falicia Blakely is at odds with her mom and soon begins working at a strip club when she meets Dino, a man who she thinks is the man of her dreams. Dino, however, is much more than he seems and soon pulls her into a dangerous life of crime that changes everything she knows about herself as she is forced to prove her love for him at the expense of innocent lives. Star Niatia 'Lil' Mama' Kirkland says of taking on the role-"I totally did not see myself playing an exotic dancer, but it was so much more to the story, I pulled from the truth of women all around the world who have been victims and not known that they were victims of society. This is what's so amazing about acting allowing myself to be as vulnerable as I would be in that moment, just to actually live through the character and become Falicia. I want to do her justice, and so I tapped into truth to tell her story. In playing Dino, a modern day Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde who uses Falicia's desire to be loved for his gain, Lance Gross says "I had to dive all the way in. This is a role nobody's ever seen me in, they're used to me being the nice guy. I want the audience to know that you really have to be conscious of the decisions that you make, because there's consequences that come along with it." Also starring in the film are Floyd Mayweather, Big Freedia and Lil Zane.
