Plot summary:

Monica, a Swedish small town girl is dreaming of the vibrant city jazz clubs. She embarks on an intense journey in the limelight as a celebrated singer and actress in the golden era of jazz. Among artists and hipsters she is cherished by all but herself as her phenomenal success leaves a trail of broken love affairs and promises. When the morning breaks she’s alone with a cocktail in her hand on a road with no turning back.
