A fight for love and glory, a case of do or die – this is one of those classic stories people the world over will enjoy. It is a tale of love, which gives you wings and the strength to be the person you always envisioned yourself to be, and a tale of fame, which weakens the body and the mind. The film portrays rebirth through a chance encounter and having to accept that the old ways are not there to support you anymore. Jackson is a burnt-out musician who is still popular enough to fill the concert halls with fans but not popular enough to fight the urge to drink himself into a state of blissful oblivion. It is obvious that the end of his career is nigh. Ally is a waitress with a voice of an angel who can at best hope for a future as the housewife of a husband decent enough to treat her right. Their stories intertwine, though, at a small bar, and everything changes. Soon enough, she starts to shine so bright that one can only be mesmerised by it, while Jackson slowly fades away. The question is, will love triumph once again?
