Gretta is a young singer-songwriter who takes to New York with her musician boyfriend Dave after he faces a major recording deal. She is supportive and not expectant of any recognition herself, but Dave still decides to finish the relationship in favour of his musical pursuits. Heartbroken, Gretta takes to performing solo at a small bar nearby and it's there she meets Dan Mulligan, a former record executive who has just been sacked by his label. He is on the lookout for a star act to get his record label career back on track and Gretta seems to fit the bill with her captivating presence. He takes her under his wing, determined to give her her own dose of success, even if their resources and finance are limited. It turns out not just to be a quest for fortune and fame though, as the pair soon find themselves transforming as people in almost every way.
