The filmmaker has never attended the Palm Beach International Film Festival. In fact, he's never attended any film festival. He's coming now because of friendships.

The invitation "sparked something in my mind," Tureaud said. "Wouldn't it be amazing if we could bring the movie to Palm Beach together? It would be like coming home."

"It was a magical experi- Griffin's interest in the project was persuasive, as was the story, de la Valdene said. "It's got everything today's successful movies have.

It's got an urban feel. It's got a fish-out-of-water story about somebody coming from the bottom and going to the top." In the story, the title character, a vocally gifted teenager born of a union between a wealthy white woman and her black lover, goes to live with her white grandmother when her black surrogate parents determine she is threatened by gang violence. Grandmother and granddaughter forge a loving relationship after many trials. Big Headz made a deal with Griffin and took over the project. "We ran the whole show out of Dallas," de la Valdene said.
