CGiii Comment

Much to admire...technically.

Too preachy to start with...the ending doesn't give closure.

Shame...it had/has potential to be something much bigger!

The(ir) Blurb...

What would it take to break you out of your COMFORT ZONE?

That is, until Star, a vibrant and aspiring black trans female rockstar, comes crashing into his world and turns his comfortably numb existence upside down with a string of reckless misadventures and a new outlook on life.
