What's the story?

Told in flash-backs, On Your Feet! charts the life of Cuban-fusion pop music legends Gloria and Emilio Estefan from the very beginning.

Growing up in the Little Havana neighbourhood of Miami, Gloria is introduced to Emilio Estefan who is a member of the Miami Latin Boys. Gloria is studying to be a psychologist and spending a lot of her time caring for her father through his battle with Multiple Sclerosis. So, when Emilio invites her to perform one of the songs she has written at a rehearsal, she is initially resistant. With pressure from her grandmother, she performs and, despite being shy, finds her place on the stage.

Gloria and Emilio fall for each other, but Gloria's mother is upset by this. Gloria discovers that when her mother was younger, she wanted to be a singer too. Her mother was offered a contract with Twentieth Century Fox to be the Spanish voice of Shirley Temple, but her father forbade it.

Gloria and Emilio hit the top of the music charts and launch a worldwide tour. Gloria struggles with the draining schedule, and the fact that her mother has become estranged due to her disapproval and jealousy.

On the road, Gloria and Emilio’s bus collides with a truck during a snowstorm. Gloria breaks her back in the accident, and is flown to New York for emergency surgery, Gloria's mother rushes to the hospital after hearing the news. Can Gloria ever recover from this tragic misfortune?
