“The Guy” is a street singer, and “The Girl” immediately senses the grief of love hidden in his songs. Thanks to her support of his music, he regains his courage and decides to record a demo tape for an audition in London. Through music, The Guy and The Girl start to understand other. As the recording nears completion, their emotions for one another grow deeper, and they both realise what they need to do with their lives.
A charming and simple film with some great music.
