Jackson Maine (Bradley Cooper) is a seasoned musician. He looks like he has it all, the looks, the money, the fame. Behind the scenes, he is an avid drinker and drug abuser. After a concert, there was heavy traffic so he stopped at a bar where he discovered- and falls in love with- the struggling artist, Ally (Lady Gaga). Ally is about to give up her dream of becoming a musician until Jackson pushes her into the spotlight. Ally’s career and relationship with Jackson takes off, while the personal side of Ally and Jackson’s relationship is breaking down as Jackson deals with his inner demons.
