In the early ’80s, Jesse Diaz was a rising star in the hip-hop world. Now he’s a broke single father living in a Harlem shelter with two children to support. But Jesse finally finds a shot at redemption in his nine-year-old daughter Priscilla, a precocious and immensely talented rapper. With older daughter Solsky the family’s quiet cheerleader, Jesse and Priscilla look to parlay “P-Star’s” talent into a victory for the whole family. And that means long rehearsals, late nights, and homeschooling for the growing girl. But as Priscilla’s star really begins to rise, it’ll tax all the relationships in her life and test Jesse in ways he never expected.
