Set in Glasgow, Scotland, the film is about a girl called Eve who is in the hospital dealing with some emotional problems and starts writing songs as a way of getting better. Songwriting becomes her way forward, leading her to the City where she meets James and Cassie, two musicians each at crossroads of their own. What follows is a story of renaissance over the course of a long, dream-like Summer. Written by
Many women and men have lived empty, wasted lives in attics trying to write classic pop songs. What they don't realize is it's not for them to decide. It's God. Or, the god of music. Or, the part of God that concerns Himself with music. That's why the hit maker has to be considered part divine because the divine spoke through them.

Something I unfortunately (?) hadn't discovered prior to watching the movie. This being a musical of some sorts, it won't be everyones cup of tea (be aware of that prior to watching, not to blame the movie after wards). The acting is good, the issues are relatable. Relationships are sort of obvious (as are feelings, even if the main characters sometimes seem to be oblivious to them for whatever reason that is and the viewer won't be able to tell).
As with every good musical there's also a lot of drama (this is going for the relationships and growing up, friendships and so forth). It's nicely told with an easy pace to follow. I liked the ending, which also might not be to everyones taste, but I didn't feel anything super special from the movie. Decent/good effort then
