In this [[DirectToVideo direct-to-DVD]] movie of 2008, Franchise/{{Barbie}} and Teresa tell Stacie the story of two best friends, Liana and Alexa. Although the two girls do not have much, they have each other and a love of music. It gets worse when a nasty storm destroys all the flowers they would usually sell, but an act of kindness grants them a magic mirror.

Inside the mirror dwells apprentice muse Melody, who used the mirror as a means of escaping evil muse Lydia, who intends to grab the key to the muses' Diamond Castle and plunge the world into a state of grim darkness.

Now, Liana and Alexa must journey to the Diamond Castle themselves and stop Lydia from controlling all the world's music and dooming it to darkness forever.
