Four aspiring music stars from the Bronx barrio pool their talents to hit it big in this music comedy starring popular Latin singer Marc Anthony. Jessica Ramos (Corina Katt Ayala) may have a voice than could melt your heart, but her tough-girl attitude is solid stone. While Jessica's sister Francesco (Iris Chachon) is a popular attraction at a local Latin nightclub, Jessica's volatile attitude has made it virtually impossible for the more amiable sibling to make inroads into the recording industry. Meanwhile, the sibling's freeloading cousin Jonathan receives the brunt of Jessica's bad attitude. When Jonathan meets local charmer Flaco (Anthony), things begin to look up a bit. Sure Flaco has his own problems to contend with - including the recent loss of his mother and his father's drinking problem - but at his core Flaco is essentially a good person. Eventually, these four talented individuals will realize that by working together and forming a hot new singing group, they may have what it takes to become the toast of the New York music scene.
