Dancehall Queen Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

In this Jamaican melodrama, single mother Marcia (Audrey Reid) works as a street vendor to support her two daughters. However, she also needs the financial assist of "Uncle" Larry (Carl Davis), who demands repayments in the form of sex with Marcia's teen daughter Tanya. After Marcia's vending stall is threatened by brutal tough Priest (Paul Campbell), she devises a retaliatory plan. The dressmaker Mrs. Gordon (Pauline Stone-Myrie) sews a sexy costume so Marcia can compete for the cash prize in the Dancehall Queen contest. When no one recognizes her in this outfit, she uses the disguise to pit Priest and Larry against each other. Shown at the 1997 Toronto Film Festival. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi
