Brief Synopsis

Karaoke ... the courage to stand up, sing and be free. The lives of six strangers from all walks of life with a passion for karaoke converge and are enriched when they meet for the Grand Prize Karaoke Contest in Omaha, Nebraska. They are: a waitress from Wheeling, West Virginia desperate to get to California to become a recording star, an ex-con unwilling to bend to the rules of society who sings with the voice of an angel, a salesman who melts down while chasing the American Dream, a seasoned karaoke hustler who is disconnected from everybody and everything, an innocent Vegas showgirl searching for family and love, and a young down-on-his-luck cab driver. Each is searching for the meaning of life. As they converge on the $5,000 Grand Prize Karaoke Contest, their lives intertwine, revealing the funny, raucous world of karaoke bars and chain hotels that link the interstates of Middle America.
