What is the plot of Cha Cha Real Smooth?

Dakota Johnson will star opposite Cooper Raiff in the new movie Cha Cha Real Smooth.

Raiff wrote the script, where we will see him play a bar/bat mitzvah DJ, who at some points strikes up a friendship with a young mother (Johnson) and her autistic daughter.

Picturestart and Endeavor Content will co-finance the project, which Raiff will produce alongside Johnson and her TeaTime Pictures partner Ro Donnelly. Jessica Switch and Julia Hammer will oversee the project for Picturestart, which also financed and produced Johnson’s upcoming movie Am I OK? that just wrapped production this past week.

Raiff has had a ton of industry buzz after his debut film Shithouse won the Grand Jury Prize at last year’s canceled SXSW festival.
