Overweight New Jersey twentysomething Patricia Dombrowski fantasises about public adoration under her rapper moniker Killa-P to rival her gold-toothed hip hop idol, O-Z. She composes tight rhymes with her best friend, Jheri. Undaunted by scorn from her mother Barb, Patricia forges a creative union with a death metal noisemaker in the hope of finding the perfect beat for her confessional lyrics. Fragile dreams shatter and Patricia turns to her emotional rock, Nana.
