In this mu­si­cal, mu­si­cians Jack­son Maine (Bradley Cooper) and Ally (Lady Gaga) meet and fall in love at a time when they are in­di­vid­u­ally fac­ing chal­lenges. Jack­son shows up in Ally’s life just as she is ready to give up on her mu­sic ca­reer, and helps up­lift her fu­ture. Mean­while, Jack­son has per­sonal de­mons of his owns to face. Although he be­comes an as­set in Ally’s ca­reer, she can­not solve his ma­jor strug­gle – a drink­ing prob­lem which he even­tu­ally loses con­trol over. While the two are in love and sup­port­ive of each other’s ca­reers, bro­ken prom­ises and hu­mil­i­a­tion end in heart­break for Ally and Jack­son’s fam­ily.
