Cute movie about a girl from Glasgow, Scotland who has to make amends for her past and present before things can go right in her future. Rose-Lynn is obsessed with country music, and is dreaming of getting to Nashville, TN to “make it” as a country singer. Little does she realize, that she is sitting on one of the greatest unwritten country songs to date, her own life story. Fresh out of prison, she references the late, great, Johnny Cash, and how, he too, spent time in jail. Throughout the course of the film, it is explained why she ‘did time’, and demonstrates how some of the locals will not let her forget her mistakes, while others are trying to help her succeed. With two kids at home, who she neglects for her singing career, Rose-Lynn’s mother is trying to get her to wake up and see how she is behaving with the hopes that she will grow up and act more responsibly. Rose-Lynn’s own conscious gets the best of her as the film takes the viewer in a couple of directions, where you really aren’t exactly sure what the outcome will be.
