Bronx Princess

Bronx Princess follows headstrong Rocky's journey as she leaves behind her mother in New York to reunite with her royal father in Ghana, West Africa. Filmed over the tumultuous summer between high school and college, Bronx Princess tells Rocky's coming-of-age story.

Filmmakers Yoni Brook and Musa Syeed, who directed A Son's Sacrifice, capture Rocky's confrontations with her immigrant parents and their ideas of adulthood and faith, as Rocky reconciles her African heritage and way of life with her dream of independence.
