Sebastian and Mia are two hopefuls of many within the city of Los Angeles, chasing their respective dreams under the bright lights of Hollywood. He, a musician, longs to own a jazz bar, whilst she has aspirations of becoming a renowned actress, though both work uninspiring jobs while attempting to turn desire into reality. After several encounters, they soon embark upon a whirlwind romance which seems to bring about a change in fortunes for the couple.
