What is the story?
Hopeful singing talents Deena Jones, Lorrell Robinson, and Effie White are performing as The Dreamettes when ambitious agent Curtis Taylor, Jr. discovers them. Landing them a job as backup singers for the soul and rock 'n' roll sensation James 'Thunder' Early, he smartly begins to mold their rising career. However Deena and Effie come to blows when the former is lauded as the group's star for her beauty, rather than the full-figured and vocally more talented Effie, and the dream threatens to unravel as fast as it began.
