Torrance (Kirsten Dunst) is the new leader of the Toros, the cheerleading squad of Rancho Carne High School as they’re poised to take their sixth national cheer title. But her new reign is cut short when she discovers her duplicitous forerunner was regularly stealing routines from the East Compton Clovers, the hip-hop influenced cheerleaders of an inner city school. Scrambling to come up with a new routine for the Toros, she butts heads with the proud and understandably wary Isis (Gabrielle Union), the leader of the Clovers, who wants to get her squad to the championships. Only one team can take home the national title. Who’s it gonna be?
