Jamilah is an ambitious college student. She's president of her black sorority, captain of the highly regarded step team, a trusted liaison to the college dean, and has plans to attend Harvard Law School.
But after her school's reputation is tarnished by a band of hard-partying white sorority girls, Jamilah is forcibly enlisted to help set things right. She's tasked with not only teaching these girls how to step, but also helping them to win a competitive dance competition.
