Protagonist Noni (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) is a singing superstar. Her mother Macy (Minnie Driver) is her manager. They have several conversations throughout the film that have nothing to do with men — about Noni's mental health, her career, a contest she doesn't win, their shared history, plans for the future, etc. The movie also starts with Macy taking Noni to a hairdresser and talking about Noni's hair; the hairdresser, Felicia, becomes a minor character and later has a second, more significant conversation with Noni about Macy.
