In this musical an immensely skilled songwriter, Joe scrapes together a living while waiting for that one perfect moment to step into the spotlight. When opportunity comes knocking, Joe leaps at the chance to write the songbook for an off-Broadway show. Inspiration comes in the form of Summer, an aspiring actress with an incredible voice that Joe thinks would be perfect for the lead, but he finds himself in a quandary when his equally talented live-in girlfriend, Evey, discovers that Joe has begun tailoring the role for another actress without considering her for the part. Director Gary King, who also wrote the film, opts to eschew spectacular dance numbers and elaborate costumes in favor of a more intimate, character-driven narrative.
