About the Movie!
When Jasmine Jazz Morgan (introducing Monique Cameron) loses her mother to a long-time battle with lung cancer, she can only focus on one thing pursuing her dream of becoming a famous singer. Ignoring the wishes of her father, Blair Morgan (Clifton Powell, RAY), a strict doctor who prefers that she return to college, Jazz spends the summer entrenched in the hyper-sexualized, drug-influenced Washington, D.C., music scene, dragging along her naive younger sister, Leah (introducing Erica Chamblee).One night, after an impromptu audition, Jazz is invited to join a local Go-go band (music by Likeblood Entertainment, Uncalled 4 Experience) that is managed by a laid back barber, Gabe (Wood Harris, REMEMBER THE TITANS) and supported with drug money provided by the lead MC, Flight (introducing Andre' Strong). With ease, she falls in line with the band and in love with the stage and together they reach new heights of popularity. But just as quickly as her success builds so does the pressure and Jazz recklessly tries to maintain control.
