I learned something today, Pop. It was really painful, but I learned something. I learned that I have to depend on myself. I can't depend on anybody else and that's ok. You know why? Because I'm a really good person to depend on. Maybe I don't have someone that I thought I loved a lot really, but that's ok because I've got me. And I've got my work. And I've got my music. And I love that - more than anything else on this earth.

This is a slight, lukewarm tale of breaking out in the big bad world of show business. Didi Conn, more famous for her role in Grease is sweet and vulnerable as Laurie, a daughter of a Vaudeville comedian (Joe Silver) and they have been performing on stage since she was a kid. Laurie never enjoyed comedy and she is really not that good at it and somehow her father has never noticed that she lacks funny bones. Laurie does have a talent for singing and songwriting and decides to breakout on her own.
She also realises that she may not love her boyfriend and then has a one night stand with a man who turns out to be a movie director who promises her a part in a film after she dubs the singing voice of the star. It turns out that the director was just using her and made empty promises.
Its a corny, independent film of 1970s cinema. Conn is sweet and she has a good rapport with Joe Silver who plays her father. She drives around in a beat up car. The title track is familiar because it was a big hit but the film has been largely forgotten.
It has to be noted that director Joseph Brooks in later life was charged for casting couch rapes. I wonder if the shallow yet sleazy director was based on himself!
