“Filmmaker Abiola Abrams blends literary and hip hop sensibilities for a daring debut.”
— Upscale Magazine on Dare
Meet Maya Hope. Double-dipped in cocoa with brick-house curves, she’s a lover of jazz, a political poet, and a sociologist. Her best friend and roommate, Athena Jackson, is her opposite in every way—a petite ex-cheerleader who’s always blaring rap, grinding out rhymes, and ready to take the next man home. When Maya is forced to pinch-hit in an audition and bust Athena’s rhymes, she finds herself on an undercover escapade in the wild world of hip-hop as the raw, sexy, roughneck Jezebel. After striking a deal with her own personal devil, Maya sets off on the tempting roller-coaster ride of a lifetime—finding music, more fun than she’s ever had, and even a man or two…but not without consequences. Brimming with electric sensuality, Dare is an unforgettable, envelope-pushing odyssey of two gutsy women playing by their own rules.
