Dre (Diggs) and Sidney (Lathan) can attribute their friendship and the launch of their careers to a single childhood moment - the day they discovered hip-hop on a New York street corner. Now some 15 years later, she is a revered music critic and he is a successful, though unfulfilled music executive.

As they lay down the tracks toward their futures, hip-hop isn't the only thing that keeps them coming back to that moment on the corner...
