These five special ladies are pulled into a fantasy world, where they’re told of an impending crisis. It’s up to these special girls to bring the world together and ward off calamity by uniting their hearts in dance. Sadly, these young ladies are unable to find their love of this world, and they can’t open up to one another. The clock is ticking, and the world (not to mention graduation!) rests upon their shoulders.
