The story of the rise and fall of three young women who make-up an African-American girl group in the racially turbulent 60s. Deena Jones, Effie White, and Lorrell Robinson desire to become pop stars and eventually get their wish when they are asked to be backup singers for the legendary James "Thunder" Early. After being set free for leads, Curtis Taylor and Effie's brother C.C. decide that Deena should be the lead singer, which upsets Effie. The girls discover exactly what it takes to be in the music business and what they must give up to realize their dream.
