Ally's singer/songwriter dreams seem to come closer to fruition when she meets Joey, a musician who's moonlighting as a janitor at the mall in order to support his own rock star ambitions. While Joey understands her songs (and heart) like no one else, Ally's happiness and the fate of the music store are threatened when the mall owner's spoiled daughter Madison � who will stop at nothing to get what she wants � becomes involved.

"The American Mall" stars Nina Dobrev ("Degrassi: The Next Generation") as Ally, Rob Mayes as Joey, Autumn Reeser ("The O.C.," "Lost Boys: The Tribe") as Madison Huxley, Yassmin Alers ("Rent") as Erin, Ally's mom, and Al Sapienza ("The Sopranos") as shopping mall owner and Madison's dad, Max Huxley.
