"Jem and the Holograms" is a modern reimagining of the 1980s animated series of the same name, following the journey of a teenage girl named Jerrica (Aubrey Peeples) as she navigates the ups and downs of instant fame and the music industry. Jerrica, also known as Jem, lives with her younger sister Kimber (Stefanie Scott) and her two foster sisters Aja (Hayley Kiyoko) and Shana (Aurora Perrineau) in a small town in California. Together, they form a band called Jem and the Holograms, showcasing Jerrica's powerful voice and heartfelt lyrics.

After a video of Jem performing a song goes viral online, their lives are turned upside down when a record executive named Erica Raymond (Juliette Lewis) offers them a chance at stardom. The catch? Jerrica has to transform into Jem and keep her true identity a secret from the world.
