After Tupac & D Foster

A lot can happen to three girls in a two-year period — especially when the rap music of Tupac Shakur is the glue holding them together.

Eleven-year-old Neeka and her best friend try to make sense of their world when they lose their other best friend and their favorite musician, Tupac Shakur.
