In 2009, two black women, united by their love of cinema and a shared sense of loneliness, embark on a transformative journey. One is the owner of a video store in the city's ghetto; the other is a voice actress who dubs foreign films. Despite their contrasting personalities—one a dreamer and extrovert, the other skeptical and insecure—they join forces to revitalize the video store and keep their dreams alive. Along the way, they discover that the love and passion they have for each other can exist both in fiction and in reality.
