In this cautionary tale, best friends Keisha and Charmaine try to make the best of life in the tough Kingston district of Tivoli Gardens. Keisha is the more polished of the pair—conventionally beautiful and more conservative in her lifestyle. She is involved with an ambitious “uptown” man who is about to leave the island to pursue his studies. Charmaine, on the other hand, is more flamboyant, a passa passa queen who engages in risky behaviour that gets her into serious trouble.

Around the two girls the everyday routine of life in these notorious streets goes on, with the beat of Jamaica’s popular dancehall accompanying the story. When Charmaine begins to feel ill, Keisha fears the worst and insists she gets tested for HIV and pregnancy. Keisha agrees to go with her as support and gets tested as well. The results would lead to drastic changes in attitudes for the women.

Trinidad + Tobago premiere.
