From that starting point, Honey quickly rises as a successful music video choreographer for Ellis' videos, eventually working for performers such as Tweet and Mark Ronson. During an industry party, a drunken Ellis hits on Honey; after being turned down, he replaces Honey with a competing choreographer for the latest Ginuwine video, in a classic example of casting couch mentality.

Honey had been planning to use her money to purchase an abandoned building, which she wanted to renovate in a hip hop dance studio for the youth group.

After threatening to fire Ellis when she discovers that Honey no longer works for him, Missy Elliott shows up at the benefit show to request her services. As a result, the children's dance studio gets a sponsor, and Honey returns to major-label video choreography.
