PLATINUM DREAMS is a coming of age story about Sharday Grant, a black teenaged girl from one of the toughest ghettos of inner city Washington DC. Sharday lives in a small apartment in a basic brick building with her single mom, who is her greatest supporter. Her dad is an absentee father and a musician whose long and winding career never took off despite his many years on the road.
Sharday has a group of girlfriends that she has been close with since elementary school. She also has a boyfriend named Donnell Dickerson, who lives in the low income projects just a short walk away. But most importantly, Sharday has an amazing voice that helps her sing R&B like an undiscovered superstar, while Donnell is a hot young rapper and producer with a head for business. Together, they plan to take their group, Lady Day and Double D, straight to the top of the music charts and they are determined not to let anyone or anything stand in their way.
In PLATINUM DREAMS, we follow Sharday Grant from the inner city of Washington DC to the suburbs of Maryland and beyond in her quest to break into the music industry. As she travels an unconventional path towards adulthood while chasing superstar status, family dynamics are strained to the limit, old arrangements fall apart and new connections are forged, and she often finds herself in places and situations she never could have imagined. Will she have the strength to persevere? Will she achieve her dreams of platinum record sales? And will anyone in her circle stay with her through the end?
