Violet is a 17-year-old living in England's rural Isle of Wight and working to help her Polish immigrant single mother. She wants to audition for a singing competition show called Teen Spirit, but her mother refuses to sign the permission forms. Violet then recruits a local drunk who happens to be a former professional opera singer to pose as her manager and coach her. As she advances in the competition, she struggles to stay true to herself.
