Although she has an influential career in Central America, in New York City she has to rap on the subway and work in a restaurant to make a living. Audry is strong as an activist; but she is also vulnerable and nostalgic for what she has left behind. The film shows how she rebuilds her life, her ego and her pride as a woman, an immigrant and an artist.

The four chosen finalists, hailing from places as diverse as Hungary, South Africa, South Korea, and Cuba/Ukraine, join on the Carnegie stage in the hopes of winning over the audience and securing the most votes.
