The life of a dancer can only last for so long until they are physically worn out. Staci is well aware of this fact and wants to make sure she can leave the world of dance on her own terms. While getting coffee with Jersey, Staci tells her that she ultimately always wanted to be a professional singer. Staci admits that while the dance world has been good to her, it is time to move on to the next phase of her career.
Later on when Staci is on her way to the recording studio, she gets a call from her agent telling her that the following week is going to be packed full of dance auditions. Staci regretfully informs her agent that she isn't going to be able to attend any of the auditions since she has booked time in the studio through out the entire week.
After laying down some tracks in the studio, Staci and her producers begin to talk about her next steps as an artist. The three of them agree that she should begin to shop her demo around to different labels. The following day Staci and her managers head over to the L.A. offices of Republic Records to meet up with an A&R scout. Staci plays her track, and afterwards that label rep compliments her on the song, but says that it isn't memorable enough to make a hit single. He then points out that he thinks Staci has a great look, and would love to bring a video demo back to his home office in New York City. Even though her producers are hesitant, Staci jumps at the chance to impress the scout, and agrees to come back in five days time with a music video.
When she leaves the meeting, it immediately dawns on Staci that she's got a large amount of work to complete in a very short amount of time. Staci heads directly to Blake's apartment in search of some help, he agrees to help her with the video, and suggests that she have Kenny do the editing, while Celestina handles the makeup. After leaving Blake's Staci picks up her brother TJ, and the two begin to work on finding a location and costumes. When things start to seem bleak, Staci begins to start to feel hopeless about the project. TJ remind his sister what she is working for, and how important it is for her to not give up her dreams.
The next day things are starting to look like they may work out when Staci gets a phone call from a friend informing her that he is willing to shoot her video. Soon after, Staci also receives a call from Jersey who informs her that she's hooked her up with a location for the shoot. Staci heads to Millennium to practice with her choreographer and dancers, and after a couple takes, is ready to start filming. The following day everyone comes together to help Staci out, and after a long arduous day, shooting is complete. As soon as the footage is ready, it is turned over to Kenny to edit. After a sleepless night Kenny is able to turn over a able to get the editing done in time, and Staci has a music video to hand off to Republic Records.
The meeting the next day goes off with out a hitch; the A&R rep is totally floored by the production value of Staci's final product, and enthusiastically accepts the demo to pass off to the head of the label in New York City. Staci and her producers leave the meeting optimistically, and for the first time in days Staci can relax because she's completed work on her first music video.
