Summary:
In the early '80s, Jesse Diaz was a rising star in the hip-hop world. Now he's a struggling single father living in a Harlem shelter with two children to support. But Jesse finally found a shot at redemption in his nine-year-old daughter Priscilla, a precocious, adorable, and immensely talented rapper. Along with older daughter Solsky, the family's quiet cheerleader, Jesse and Priscilla look to parlay "P-Star's" talent into victory for the whole family. P-STAR RISING follows this father-daughter duo through four years, capturing all the grit and glamour of the music industry: late nights in the studio, performances around the world, music label negotiations, home schooling, and ultimate financial salvation. But as Priscilla's star really begins to rise, it taxes all the relationships in her life and tests Jesse as a father in ways he never expected.
