It follows the adventures of a young female singing trio from Chicago, Illinois. Called The Dreams, they fight their corner to become Motown superstars.

Effie, Lorrell and Deena are three talented young singers in the turbulent 1960s, a revolutionary time in American music history. Join the three friends as they embark upon a musical roller-coaster ride through a world of fame, fortune and the ruthless realities of show business, testing their friendships to the very limit.
