Sadye (really Sarah) and Demi, two social outcasts who are joined together through their love of musicals are off to musical theater camp. Sadye quickly discovers that her talents are not as strong as she’d thought, and in the cut-throat competitiveness over roles, she’s disappointed with what she gets. Meanwhile, Demi turns out to be star material and not only that, has the attentions of two boys. Their friendship is strained by these differences, and the fact that Sadye doesn’t get that being black is an issue that Demi has to deal with every day of his life. Both of them behave rather poorly toward each other, but Sadye is having trouble getting along with her roommates and drama directors as well.
