Emma Mae

Directed by Jamaa Fanaka

When her mother dies, Mississippi bumpkin Emma Mae (Jerri Hayes) goes to live with her cousins in Los Angeles. She quickly falls in with smooth-talking drug pusher Jesse (Ernest Williams II), but their romance is cut short when he’s jailed for beating up a cop. Loyal to a fault, Emma tries to raise bail money by starting a car wash, and when that fails, resorts to robbing a bank with a shotgun. The plan works, but the newly freed Jesse proves unfaithful, pushing Emma to take revenge.
