Janet Jackson and Tupac Shakur shine in this timeless Singleton masterpiece, where artistry collides with sacrifice. Justice (Janet Jackson), a gifted young poet, seeks refuge in her poetry, finding solace in writing as grief takes its toll. Encouraged by friends, she sets out on a journey to Oakland, where the ingénue crosses paths with Lucky (Tupac Shakur), a charming boy from around the way. As much as they run from it, they inevitably find themselves catching feelings for each other. Will this love transcend the chasm of their differences and the weight of their trauma?
