Through candid interviews with Asia One, the film offers a unique perspective on her life as a single mother, as a pioneer in the world of bboy competition, on how race and identity has impacted her life, and how the diverse elements of Hip-Hop culture can transform lives. Asia’s story is a testimony to breaking through economic, gender, and race barriers to find a perfect beat.
