Annotation

In Friday with Jerome in Jamaica, Jessie spends the day at her nanny Georgia’s house in Jamaica, Queens, where she is warmly welcomed by Georgia’s multigenerational family. Papi, Georgia’s father, brightens up a rainy day by inviting Jessie and his grandson Jerome into his art studio, where he shows them how to unleash their creative juices. With Papi’s encouragement, Jessie is inspired to soar to new heights and express herself in an entirely new way.
