This heartfelt musical biopic tells the story of Tejano music icon, Selena Quintanilla-Perez (Jennifer Lopez). Born into a musical Mexican-American family in Texas, Selena is encouraged by her father (Edward James Olmos), and begins performing with her at small venues. She finds success and falls for her guitarist, Chris Perez (Jon Seda), who draws the ire of her father. Seeking mainstream stardom, Selena begins recording an English-language album which, tragically, she would never complete.
