Synopsis

Samantha (38), a star-crossed singer-songwriter, lives alone in one of New Orleans' toughest neighborhoods. By day she works as a caregiver for the elderly; at night she transforms into Princess Shaw, belting out soulful originals at sparsely attended open mic nights and posting homemade a cappella clips on YouTube, usually reaching just a handful of viewers. She doesn't imagine that on the other side of the world, she has a talented secret admirer who is about to expose her to millions of listeners.
