The curtain opens to a Terry-Gilliam-esque room full of music equipment, televisions and monitors. Playing on all of the screens is a soon-to-be-seen feature film, an epic romance about a young artist struggling to make it, and the girl who loves him.
Studio lights fade up. On the stage before you is an incendiary rock and roll band, all of them masters of their craft. Only this time their job is not a concert, but a commission: Compose the music that will become the soundtrack of the film before them - the romantic movie with the Hollywood ending.
As the session progresses it becomes painfully clear that TABATHA, the sultry female lead singer and MILES, the brooding male lead singer are former lovers with a stormy past and very different ideas about the band's future. Yet despite their feelings they hold the verbal animosity, pick up their instruments and play on. There are only three songs left on the movie soundtrack and Tabatha, who accepted the job against Miles' objections, is dead set on finishing so they can collect a much needed paycheck and keep from being thrown out of their rented recording studio. Even so, Miles can't help but to insist that the band has sold out and abandoned their original intentions - "music only, no compromise."
But then, the unexplainable happens. The movie couple breaks up and the happy ending is unexpectedly replaced by a tragic one. A phone rings, it's the studio and the news isn't good - something has gone terribly wrong with the movie, the editor and director are in a panic, the film opens in a week! Pure shock overcomes the studio when the band discovers the truth behind the bizarre mystery - their music is responsible for the couple breaking up.
As the band settles into accepting their Twilight Zone situation, Tabatha has a crazy idea. If their music derailed the happy ending, perhaps their music can save it? Genius right? Not so fast. Miles has no intention of selling out even further and refuses to cooperate. And with that the BATTLE IS ON! It's Tabatha verses Miles as they square off and trade licks - each trying to persuade the film characters to listen and react. But as the lines between fiction and fact, dreamland and reality begin to blur into a surreal, psychedelic kaleidoscope - a mind-bending discovery is about to be made by the band - a discovery that will not only change the course of their lives - but redefine the very notion of existence itself.
In the end, as would be expected, love begins to triumph. Miles, realizing the damage he's done and pain he's causing the former love of his life, waves the white flag of humility and remorse and through a heartbreaking ballad begs for Tabatha's forgiveness.
With the lovers on stage finally reunited there's no time to waste. They must put aside the past, find love, gather light, and play with all of their hearts -
