Dancehall Queen is a modern-day Cinderella story, with no Prince Charming, but one very strong woman, backed by a pulsing reggae soundtrack and the scintillating sights of Kingston, Jamaica.
In the gritty world of the Kingston ghetto, there are few ways out. Fortunately Marcia, a humble street vendor struggling to survive as a single mother, discovers the world of the dancehall. Through it she finds more than great music and hot relationships, she finds a way to a better life. By day, she toils in the hot Kingston streets and by night she becomes "the mystery lady", the new star of the dancehall. Here is her chance to escape the clutches of Larry, who under the guise of helping her hard-pressed family is actually after her eldest daughter, Tanya. Also, she will finally be able to rid herself of Priest, the murderous thug who is threatening her very existence.
If Marcia can win the dancehall contest, the prize money and more importantly, her own sense of worth, she will finally be free. Free not onlly of the lowlifes like Larry and Priest, but of the ghetto itself.
