This British-French documentary chronicles the endeavors of a group of star struck young people in Sheffield England as they attempt to break into show business. Glen, a petty thief, is pretty good at karaoke. Paul, a boxer who wants to act, must deal with an image consultant. He also is trying to wheedle local car dealers into giving him a free car in exchange for his star quality. Sarah, a young mother who was recently arrested and put in jail during a Greek holiday for immoral dancing, tries to take that incident and launch a singing career. She is assisted by several unscrupulous entrepreneurs. Wayne Chadwick, a bar owner, is one of them.
