A washed-up '80s pop star has a matter of days to write a good song for a duet with a successful musician. If he can't complete the task, he will not be able to get his life back together. Luckily, he finds a natural lyricist in the kindly lady who waters his plants. She's cute, too, and he begins to fall for her. There are just two problems with the budding romance: she's just come off a bad relationship and he's a commitment-phobe.
