Ten Spot begins when the mother of three budding hip-hop prodigies is mowed down by a hit-and-run on a Brooklyn street corner, barely saving the youngest of her talented children, but their chance at a recording career is dashed. Only the peering eyes of the caustic Italian widow downstairs have any clue about what really happened. It is a murder that no one in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, will ever forget, including the child who was saved and his older sister.
