  Ali Kurmi is a DJ and songwriter. For most of his adult life he's been hiding a huge secret. A chance meeting with an older woman at one of his gigs instantly changes everything. Suddenly, he sees a way to break free from his coercive father and chase his musical dreams. Charismatic Laura O'Brien comes with tragic baggage - but also a huge bank balance.
   With such different ages and cultural backgrounds neither expected to fall so helplessly in love. Ali is inspired to write more music - and funded by Laura, pursues a place in the unwelcoming music business. Laura just wants to put her recently-acquired vast wealth to philanthropic use. So why are all these people trying to destroy them? What have they done to deserve such cruelty?
