SYNOPSIS:

Discouraged after the failure of her latest film endeavor, Nisa, a seriously ambitious and determined young woman in her mid-20s, moves back to her family home in Maine to live with her caring sister, Lila, and slacker geek brother, Jared. Upon arriving home, Nisa learns that YouStar, an online talent contest where viewers vote for the winners, is holding a music video competition. Since YouStar savaged her own short film, Nisa comes back with a vengeance, using the talents of her own film background, her musician sister, and her agreeable brother to turn Jared into the next internet pop sensation via YouStar.

In addition to following this family on their roller coaster ride through the YouStar contest, the story provides a unique and comedic perspective on internet pop and gossip culture.
