Set during the resurgence of the hip-hop music scene in the Bay Area during the 80’s, Vanessa, a young Filipino-American teenager gets inspired by watching her brother’s deejay crew recreating new sound by manipulating records and sound mixers. When her brother and other crew members get to witness her natural style and rhythm, she empowers herself by earning her spot in the band. The film is director Marie Jamora’s homage to the Filipino-American community’s contribution to hip-hop music.
