Alex Fletcher (Hugh Grant), a washed-up ’80s pop star who's been reduced to working the nostalgia circuit at county fairs and amusement parks gets a chance at a comeback when reigning diva Cora Corman (Haley Bennett) invites him to write and record a duet with her. However, there’s a slight problem – Alex hasn't written a song in years, he's never written lyrics, and he has to come up with a hit in a matter of days.

Enter Sophie Fisher (Drew Barrymore), Alex's quirky plant lady, whose flair for words strikes a chord with the struggling songwriter. On the rebound from a bad relationship, Sophie is reluctant to collaborate with anyone, especially commitment-phobic Alex. As their chemistry heats up at the piano, Alex and Sophie will have to face their fears – and the music – if they want to find the love and success they both deserve.
