Presented as part of THE CHICAGO CRITICS FILM FESTIVAL

Patricia "Killa P" Dombrowski drafts rhymes behind the bar at a dingy dive, trying to pay off her coarse but beloved Nana's medical bills and support her hard-drinking mom, whose own musical aspirations failed long ago. Patti and her rap partner/best friend Jheri share dreams of fame, fortune, and escaping Dirty Jersey for good, but they haven't found a producer with the "fire beats" they need. Unbroken by the taunts of local goons, she unexpectedly gravitates to a reclusive goth-metal musician named Basterd, a newcomer who just might be able to help Patti achieve hip-hop superstardom.
