Divided into her three disciplines and portrayed as 3 distinct yet unanimous personalities in the process of auditioning for the biggest role of her life all the while trying to escape an exposing conversation with her boyfriend about her mental health; the action is interweaved between her stressed romantic relationship , the audition room, her insecurities, subconscious desires and the embodiment of what she believes is her highest aspirations as displayed in her Diva vs her Voice of Reason vs her Inner child.
