The career of hopeful, young singer Esther Hoffman (Streisand) is launched by fading rock star John Norman Howard (Kris Kristofferson), who also wins the young singer's heart. Hoffman becomes a leading lady on stage and in Howard's life, but as Howard's career flounders, he sinks into an abyss of alcohol and cocaine.
