In this sweetly beautiful romantic comedy, San Francisco musician & rising star Goh Nakamura's life of solitude is disrupted when he is hired to teach TV actor Danny Turner how to play guitar for an upcoming film. Hellbent on accurately portraying Goh's mellow vibe for his role, Danny meticulously studies his every move. Together, the two embark on a hilarious West Coast adventure involving live gigs, groupies, shotgun wielding exes, and an unexpected friendship. Along the way, Goh discovers that Danny may be the missing puzzle piece in his life-long chase for Rachel, the one that got away.
