Plot – A long queue is forming outside one of Broadway’s theaters: the director Zach is recruiting aspiring dancers for the next musical. After a back-breaking selection, Zach choses 16 dancers who are going to compete in a final stage, but first they have to talk about themselves and explain why they want to pursuit that kind of career. In the meantime, Cassie arrives: she is a talented dancer in love with Zach, who left him to go to Hollywood. She has to leave the past behind and start over in order to compete for the place. At the end, Zach choses 8 dancers, including Cassie, who remained loyal to her professionality and love.
