No one would guess that Leo and Aaron are brothers. Leo, 20, is arrogant and ambitious. Aaron, 18, is shy and reserved. The two are united by a deep frustration. Leo is driven by an irrepressible eagerness for fame and fortune, but has failed in his attempts to succeed in theatre. Aaron watches as a classmate, with whom he is secretly in love, becomes a movie star after an open audition. Now that sheʼs famous, sheʼs definitely out of his league.
One day, Leo happens to hear some songs that Aaron has secretly composed and recorded in his room. The songs are so good that Leo hatches a plan that could satisfy the longings of both brothers: if Leo popularises Aaronʼs songs, he can achieve money and fame for the two of them, and his brother can meet his secret love as equals.
