Rose-Lynn Harlan, an aspiring country singer and single mother of two from Glasgow, is released from jail after a twelve-month sentence for attempted drug smuggling. She learns that she has lost her job in the house band at Glasgow's Grand Ole Opry, as the manager refuses to employ an ex-felon. Rose-Lynn's mother Marion, who has been caring for her two young children while Rose-Lynn was in jail, encourages her to give up her dream of becoming a musician to focus on more practical careers and taking care of her family. Rose-Lynn takes a job as a housekeeper for a wealthy local woman, Susannah. Susannah's children overhear Rose-Lynn singing while cleaning one day and inform their mother, who confides that she is also a country music fan. Rose-Lynn asks Susannah for money to travel to Nashville and try to make it as a musician, but Susannah declines. However, she does get in contact with BBC Radio presenter Bob Harris and sends him a recording of Rose-Lynn's singing; he offers to meet with her if she comes to London. Rose-Lynn appears before a judge to ask him to lift her curfew so she can travel, and he agrees. She travels by train to London and sits in on a live performance by the visiting Ashley McBryde. Harris encourages her to keep performing and figure out what she has to say so she can start writing her own songs. Susannah offers Rose-Lynn a performing gig at her upcoming house party, where she intends to ask her guests to contribute to Rose-Lynn's Nashville fund in lieu of gifts. Rose-Lynn asks Marion to watch the children in the week leading up to the party so she can rehearse, but Marion declines to cancel her vacation plans, so she is forced to shuttle her kids around to various friends who agree to watch them. The day before the performance, Susannah's husband pulls Rose-Lynn aside and says he knows about her arrest, threatening to tell his wife unless Rose-Lynn agrees to stay away from his children after her performance.
