World renowned as a virtuosic pianist, Florence Foster Jenkins has a new dream: to become a famous opera singer.
Her voice, however, leaves a lot to be desired and she becomes famous for her lack of talent.
Despite the constant criticism from her peers and audiences which Florence's manager and partner St.
Clair Bayfield (Hugh Grant) endeavours to keep from her, Florence battles on and, with St.
Clair's help, she conquers the New York stage to become a household name.
