After nearly losing her life in a bloody school shooting, the believing 14-year-old Celeste sings at a memorial service for the victims and becomes America's new favorite. She is offered a fat record contract, and her career shoots at record speed. But status as a world star is costly. Celine grows up too abruptly and loses her faith and innocence, both literally and figuratively, at the same time as the whole nation enters a darker phase after 9/11.
Almost two decades later, Celine is a worn-out and over-made troublemaker, and her career has almost been ruined by a scandalous incident. She is preparing for her comeback with a sixth album, "Vox Lux", but will the people still have their little favorite?
