Bittersweet is a story that follows Ashley, a naïve but musically inclined African- American teenager; growing up in the gritty streets of Compton, California during the early 90s. With the influence of her precocious best friend Sadre, Ashley learns a lot about boys but wasn’t prepared to fall in love with a drug dealer, named Cuddy whose dirty secrets do more than shake-up Ashley’s world. A broken heart leads her into the arms of a well-known rap artist and producer named, Saint, who takes notice of Ashley’s incredible singing ability and gives her an opportunity that can get her out of the ghetto for good. Be careful when you mix business with pleasure; it can become a recipe for disaster. Ashley quickly finds out that Hollywood is just as cruel as the hood, but she wasn’t ready for what the music business had planned for her. Murder, sex and heartbreaks lead to unforeseen tragedy and unexpected love. Backs will be stabbed and secrets will be exposed.

Fasten your seatbelt for Ashley’s rollercoaster ride to stardom.
