Facing many hurdles from her birth she endures entirely new ones when coming face to face with her Idol Michael Jackson. Elisa relentlessly pursues her idol over 30 years, unwavering in her objective.
The object of her obsession/love of her life leads her to lust after overnight success in Los Angeles or as many call “Hollywood.” From juggling multiple gigs, Colleges, & film schools, at a time when crack cocaine became a national epidemic; inflated by Los Angeles gang culture. Elisa rises above all of her tribulations gaining connections from cultural icons from the likes of Zsa Zsa Gabor the extravagant Hungarian heiress and actress to an eccentric encounter with the rapper Eric Wright “Easy-E,.”
