What sound does a spoiled young pop star make when she is out of tune with life, and what will a wanna-be star, do to take her place?
Star had "made it" and had it all... or did she? She is the center of her universe when she discovers how small it really is.
Paths cross between those climbing up the ladder, those falling off, and those putting the ladder away. This fresh, contemporary film offers the sounds of classical, rock, and bluegrass and they collide as lives intersect, resulting in a new sound, a new life, a new beginning.
In the end, Star discovers that the art to fine tuning her life is much like tuning a violin so that it is in harmony with those around her, as she finds the family she never had.
This is a wonderful story which shows how a snobby star becomes a Christian and is transformed into a giving person who sings for Christ.
Star is a big star, every little girl's dream. She has made it big and belts out songs in live concerts. However, she is snooty. She yells at the dancers, telling them they're no good. She expects people in a small town to know who she is and she expects a local church to stop everything to help her when her truck crashes into a river.
However, a Christian family who is kind to her influences her life. Following her accident she can't walk or sing for a while but prayer restores her and she becomes a totally new person. We are thrilled to recommend this movie for all ages although very young children might not enjoy it as much as those eight years old and up. We are pleased to award our Dove "Family-Approved" Seal to this film. This movie inspires the viewer to believe that life truly can be fine-tuned by God!
