"[Singleton's] eye and ear for details, particularly the details of female life, are superb."Johanna Steinmetz, Chicago Tribune

"Singleton passes the director's acid test: the difficult second movie. This proves he's no flash N the pan."—Desson Thomson, Washington Post

Still grieving after the murder of her boyfriend, hairdresser Justice (Janet Jackson) writes poetry to deal with the pain of her loss. Unable to get to Oakland to attend a convention because of her broken-down car, Justice gets a lift with her friend, Iesha (Regina King) and Iesha's postal worker boyfriend, Chicago (Joe Torry). Along for the ride is Chicago's co-worker, Lucky (Tupac Shakur), to whom Justice grows close after some initial problems. But is she ready to open her heart again?
