Set in 2000, Paper Dolls follows the meteoric rise and fall of the fictional girl-band INDIGO — a manufactured pop group born out of one of the first reality TV shows.

Desperate to escape their ordinary reality and with aspirations of pop-stardom, five hopeful women step into the spotlight… only to find their dream of fame is compromised by what it takes to achieve it.

As INDIGO is unleashed into the world to instant success and stardom, the girls' connection with each other evolves from competition to confidants. But their secrets threaten to tear the band apart, especially the machinations of one extra ambitious member who re-enters the music industry for a specific reason — to implode the group and seek vengeance on the record label that wronged her.
