Abraham Quintanilla is a veteran musician who leads a family-based singing group, The Dinos.

At a young age, he notices that his daughter Selena has a strong singing voice, and he works her into the act.

Soon Selena wants to establish her own musical identity and her blend of Tejano roots music and danceable pop rhythms soon sparks a revolution in Latin music.

After a long string of successes on the Latin charts, Selena begins recording her first English album, which is expected to make her a mainstream star on the level of Whitney Houston.

However, her fate is sealed and it was an album she would never complete.
