An Afro-Latina struggles with her identity as she navigates the Hollywood machine.
“Rizo" tells the story of an Afro-Latina actress, Cristina, who struggles with her natural hair during a busy day of auditions. She spends the day trying to fit into a Hollywood-esque "Latina" beauty standard in hopes of booking a role, while her best friend encourages her to write and produce her own material instead. Cristina refuses to do so, instead of focusing her attention on an upcoming "big break" audition. Her hopes are disrupted, however, when the audition takes a turn for the worse.
