Casey, a 21-year-old girl from a small town, dreams of becoming a famous dancer. She loves to create along with her friends choreographies that she publishes on her YouTube channel, hoping that someone notices their skill. The big chance came when Quinn, a talent scout, finds one of their videos on the Internet and contacts Casey to offer her a valuable opportunity, but she will have to seize it alone, without his group. Casey will be forced to decide whether to betray her friends or to give up her dream.
