In this sweet love story, music critic Sidney and hip-hop record exec Dean realize that they will only realize their true passions by remembering what they learned in their childhood on a New York street corner.

Dre (Taye Diggs), a hip hop A&R executive at a New York record label and Sidney (Sanaa Lathan), a magazine editor have known each other since they were kids. They can attribute their friendship and the launch of their careers to the moment in their childhood when they discovered hip-hop on a New York street corner. Now 15 years later, they are brought back together. 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.
