Outcast is the story of 15-year-old Mohana Prasad, who is as normal as an Indian girl can be, except that she has a way with words. After winning a contest, she becomes the head songwriter for Jamie West. The pop superstar used to be Mohana's best friend; but now that she has become famous, Jamie doesn't have time for Mohana, leaving her feeling like an outcast.
