Superstar Janet Jackson makes her stunning film debut in director John Singleton’s (Boyz N the Hood) street- smart love story, Poetic Justice. A mismatched pair pushed together for a road trip from South Central L.A. to Oakland, Justice (Jackson) and Lucky (Tupac Shakur) have only one thing in common: they can’t stand eachother. But as their friends Iesha and Chicago (Regina King and Joe Torry) fight –and make up– in the back of the van, Justice and Lucky find themselves reluctantly drawn together before being confronted once again by the shocking violence they thought they’d left behind. Featuring the music of Naughty by Nature and Tony! Toni!Tone!, and the poetry of Maya Angelou.
