Synopsis

STRAPPED takes you on the hood ride of your life as the main character Amber Jones aka `Lil Bit' struggles to have the basic necessities of life, shelter and food. She's been dealt a harsh hand to begin with then fast forward and she's the hood version of Cinderella. Who is her Prince Charming? Maurice. Maurice is Amber's key out of the hood. He is captain save a hoe! She has fancy clothes, shoes that Beyonce' would wear, an apartment overlooking the Hudson River, and cars that you see in videos. All the finer things in life cost, but what's the price tag? Will she pay with her life or her freedom? And, Maurice is undisputedly the heavy weight drug don of Newark. He controls the Federation and they move effortlessly getting money. I have never read about a drug cartel sooooo ruthless that you love to hate them. When Amber falls in love with a low level hustler and tries to tell Maurice to the left to the left he ends up going to the right and surely not by himself. Men aren't the only ones moving through Newark getting money and popping champagne. Banks introduces us to an all-star cast of women that you will either love or hate. I saw myself living vicariously through not only Amber, but Deja and Sade. In STRAPPED you read a True2Life depiction of three females riding along side big boss players. When their worlds collide any and everything transpires.
