La-La is a songstress with beautiful long hair. Her mother enrolls her into CAPA, because it is the way for them to have riches and get out of the hood. However, La-La wishes she could make her sister, Remy, well again. When she arrives at CAPA, La-La comes face-to-face with the one person she cannot stand, Nakeeda, a girl who believes her voice is the best between the two. When La-La stops being afraid of Nakeeda and challenges her to a sing-off, everyone is interested to see who wins. The loser will lose more than just the title of the best singer. Who will take the prize?
