Moon Fuentez is the camerawoman for her famous Fotogram influencer twin sister Star. Ever since her father left, Moon has accepted her role as the dark skinned ugly sister in the shadow of Star. 

It is the summer after high school graduation and Moon was told – not given a choice by their mother, who has only Star’s success on her mind – that she has to go on a bus tour as the merch girl with Star and other famous Fotogram  influenzers. The only upside to this is that she will make enough money to afford going to the dream college she was accepted into. Not in her plans where Santiago, the always grumpy merch boy who is also the hottest guy ever, and someone finally noticing the art she is creating.

Will the universe she discovers this summer be Santiago or will it be herself creating her art?
