JJ Baker has never had the chance to play a leading role. Star actress Madison Engers has always been in the limelight, until JJ wins the role of Juliet in the famous Shakespeare play. Her hopes for stardom may be in danger though after Romeo literally breaks his leg. JJ and her director know the talented rebel Dylan would make the perfect Romeo, if they could only convince him he’s actor material! Rivalries and romance make this behind-the scenes high school comedy a must-see!
