Teenager Celeste, a survivor of a high school shooting, performs a song at a memorial for her murdered classmates, and in so doing captures the attention of a manager who sets her on the path to fame.
Years later, the now adult Celeste is a Gaga-esque global superstar; struggling to stage a career rebirth despite personal problems, wounded by the artificial world of the corporate machine music business.
