The 23-year-old Patricia Dombrowski, also known as Patti Cake$ or Killa P, lives in a deprived town in in New Jersey. She dreams of becoming a successful rapper, but is too ordinary. The rappers on the street simply make fun of her. At home, she’s stuck between a loving, disabled granny and her embittered mother. So she works hard to earn extra money, grabbing every opportunity to showcase her music. Aided by her best friend Jheri, the mysterious musician Basterd and her granny, she finally squares up to the bullies, unpaid bills and her broken dreams.
