Movie Synopsis
Laura Branigan stars in this Australian-made film as Kate Lawrence, a rock singer at the top of her career who wants to suddenly prove herself a dramatic actress. The only problem is the only play that's interested in her as a lead is being produced in Australia. So she travels halfway across the world and finds herself face to face with renowned critic Robert Landau (Michael Aitkens), who can't stand the thought of an American playing a part that an Australian could play. But when Kate confronts Robert, the animosity soon turns to admiration and then to love. But when the play closes and Kate returns to the US, will love follow?
