SYNOPSIS 

After taking a break from the stage, Manuel returns with a musical about making a musical. To help direct his theatrical comeback, he reaches out to renowned choreographer Sara (who also happens to be his ex-wife). During casting, young Ines stands out as a rising star while dealing with her father and a local mob. At rehearsal, both passion and tension grow among the dancers.

 

Powerful Mexican music sets the tone and a play will emerge in which tragedy, fiction and reality intertwine.
