On the evening of December 28th, 1998, Myeisha Jackson’s night ends with her asleep in her car, her cousins outside, and police on the way. In the fleeting moments before the unthinkable occurs, she awakes with a start inside her inner dreamscape and contemplates her life--what it was and what it was going to be. A metaphysical trip into Myeisha’s mind reveals a life brimming with promise on the cusp of adulthood--her secrets, goals, flaws, strengths, loves, and talents--and is fueled and expressed by her love of hip hop, dance, and spoken word as she comes to terms with what’s happened to her.
Director: Bryian Keith Montgomery Jr.
