Recently divorced Monica Gordon moves from Harrisburg to Philadelphia which is a lot like Harrisburg without the cows. Her teen daughter Nicole (Nafessa Williams) makes friends with girls who date gang members and becomes privy to a murder her mom is prosecuting. The film incorporates rap/hip-hop which rhymes Rocky with cocky and use the word "Philadelphia" a lot. Nicole falls in love with Mike (Marvin Warner) whose brother was the first victim. The story is told in eight 10-12 minute chapters from BET rated TV-14. The bad language cut out with far too many awkward silent moments, although there are times when you get a partial f-bomb. The story held my interest, the acting being acceptable for TV viewing. Like most TV films, the story doesn't go too deep.
A musical talented young woman hangs out with a tough crew and gets caught up in a murder investigated by her mom.
