Coming-of-age drama about a young woman who battles against the odds to achieve her dreams. Following the death of her drug-addicted sister, high school student, Raya (Rutina Wesley), is then forced to leave her private medical school and return to her old, crime-filled neighbourhood. In order to raise enough to pay her tuition fees and return to school, Raya decides to enter an upcoming step-dancing competition, with prize money of $50,000 up for grabs. Raya uses her impressive dance moves to earn a place in her good friend Bishop's (Dwain Murphy) team. However, the ambitious dancer is kicked off the team for showing off during a preliminary competition. Now, if Raya has any hope of realising her dreams, she will have to regain Bishop's trust.
