10-year-old Lakshmi lives and breathes ‘Dance’ and dreams of winning the ‘Pride of India Jr.’ title in the national level dance competition. However, her single mother Nandini detests music and dance. Soon, she forms an unlikely bond with the people in a cafe near her school. Though Lakshmi approaches it for the music played in the store, she soon becomes a regular. Vijay Krishna welcomes her when he becomes impressed by her moves, followed reluctantly by waiter Azhagu. Lakshmi gains VK’s sympathy, and he accepts her request for him to help her to achieve her dreams with VK posing as her father. Lakshmi arranges to join the Chennai Dance Academy to be able to participate in the competition without Nandini’s knowledge. Lakshmi enthralls everyone at the academy with her moves and manages to impress dancers Arjun and Arnul into developing small crushes on her.
