After battling debilitating illnesses that left her out of the spotlight, Toni Braxton is looking to regain her status in the industry by turning to her mother, Evelyn, and her sisters: Traci, "The Underdog"; Towanda, "Mrs. Congeniality"; Trina, "The Wildcard"; and Tamar, "Baby." As Traci dreams of rejoining her famous sister on stage as a background singer, Tamar wants nothing to do with the background. She wants to be front and center and isn't afraid to let everyone know that doo-whoppin for Toni is not what she needs. Towanda wants nothing more than to escape life as Toni's assistant, but Toni doesn't seem ready to give her up and shuns any new assistant that she gets. Trina wants to be respected for her choices as a musician, even if that includes performing with a cover-band, but her sisters can't believe that makes her happy and make fun of her for it. Plus, Toni must deal with her bankruptcy problems.
