With the girls in some extra-ordinary circumstances, the girls face thir challenges (job hunting, hospitalized mother, taboo love, school athletics, etc.) with their music serving as backdrop. Heartstrings are pulled: even though one may not relate to all the dramas presented, chords from at least one story should be struck with most viewers.
