Summary

Summary

Filmmaker Gabriel Noble follows nine year old hip-hop phenomenon P-Star as she prepares to move out from under the shadow of her single-parent father/mentor and take the music industry by storm. By night P-Star keeps the clubs rocking, and by day she greets her fans at public appearances. Back in the day, P-Star's dad produced such groundbreaking acts as Ice-T and 2 Live Crew; these days, all of his energy goes toward helping his daughter reach the top of the charts. But despite her age, P-Star is fiercely independent. She's never stopped thinking about her mother, and after securing a record deal she begins to voice her own opinions about how to create a successful public image. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
