Very believable story. A tug-a-war with identity, ego, and family trauma. This may no appeal to every person who sees it. I read many of the critic's reviews who state the movie as "stereotypical"; however, being Latina myself I felt this movie gave a true heartfelt story of a young girls struggle with family addiction, trauma, culture, and identity. Mojo's father said it best when he stated "I know who I am". According to the US bureau of Justice: Justice Policy Institute Report: 308.7 million people were incarcerated 2010 (how many families is US were effected by this? How many daughters?) . This story is empowering because it's about the unconditional love of a daughter who is in pain because her Mother is in Prison; a daughter who finds her voice through her music while struggling to keep her family together. The only stereotype related to this movie is via the critics; who believe that these issues are not really happening in their own cities.
