"A total knockout, but it's also a movie that gets you to believe, at every step, in the complicated rapture of the story it's telling...transcendent!" — Variety
The raw and passionate tale of Jack and Ally, two artistic souls coming together, on stage and in life. Theirs is a complex journey through the beauty and the heartbreak of a relationship struggling to survive.

She has given up on her dream to become a successful singer, until she meets Jack, who immediately sees her natural talent.
