When country music star Jackson Maine (Bradley Cooper
) stops at a bar for a drink after a concert, he's both entertained and mesmerized by young nightclub singer Ally (Lady Gaga
). He discovers that she writes songs as well as being a talented singer, but because of her looks, hasn't had a break.
The next day, he invites her to attend his concert, where he has a surprise for her. She reluctantly falls for him, despite his obvious drinking problem, while Jackson is head over heels for Ally and wants her to join him onstage in his concert tour. She gains recognition by his side, as he offers her more and more opportunities to take center stage. However, Jackson faces demons from his childhood and when he combines drugs with alcohol, his future is threatened.
