In the early 60s, Monica, a young, rebellious girl from Sweden is determined to make it as a singer in the vibrant jazz clubs of Stockholm and New York City. She embarks on the singing career of her dreams, now rubbing shoulders with Miles Davis, Ella Fitzgerald and Bill Evans. But behind all the glamour, Monica struggles to face the dark side of fame and success. With a string of broken love affairs, a father she can never please, and a daughter to whom she’ll never be the perfect mother, Monica finds herself feeling more lost than ever.
