Sara (Cole) is catering her niece’s quinceañera, but the 15th birthday celebration becomes complicated when her former boyfriend Tony (Levy) returns to Miami to cater his own niece’s quinceañera…taking place the very same weekend. The situation gets a bit prickly when Sara and Tony are pitted against each other to win the cover of a local magazine. The families who were once close are now at odds over the conflicting quinceañeras, leaving fences to mend if their friendship will be restored. As Sara and Tony try to outdo each other and put on the perfect party, will their reunion spark a rivalry or lead them to romance?
