Four women working backstage on a rock tour each come to terms with being a woman in a male-dominated industry. When Alex Evans, a thirty-six-year-old touring electrician, is implicated in an accident involving the female pop star she works for, she and three other women on tour rent a house together in Tuscany.
While the tour regroups, confessions are made, secrets are spilled: the guitar tech conceals a forbidden love, the production assistant’s ambition knows no limits, and the personal assistant battles mental issues.
Through arguments and accidents, combating drug use and religion, the women help each other look back on the choices they’ve made, eventually buoying each other, offering up strength to face tough decisions ahead.
