Hold On (Presented by: Joule Entertainment and Hispanicize Films)
Directed by Tarek Tohme
Inspired by true events, ‘Hold On’ tells the story of Sidney Rhodes, a talented mixed race singer who must fight to keep her personal dreams and family life alive while working at a small Los Angeles church. As she encounters a string of disappointing auditions and struggles to save her brother from a life of addiction, Sidney eventually meets 25-year-old Vic Duran, the rebellious son of a famed music manager who greets her with an unlikely proposal. Armed with contrasting personalities and differing opinions on life and music, Sidney and Vic soon find themselves on an unexpected creative journey…where hope and redemption appear on the horizon, but the pains of the past make it difficult to hold on.
