Hotshot, young attorney Bobby Kelly is on the fast track at a prestigious, Los Angeles law firm and seems to have it all-good looks, money and an engagement to the daughter of the managing partner. However, increasingly disenchanted, he is unfocused, frustrated and frequently under fire for his mistakes, both personally and professionally.

With a few cocktails fueling his bravado, Bobby stands up to belt out an old jazz standard ... and much to everyone's surprise, including his own, he has real talent.

In the process of helping them, Bobby slowly finds himself - perhaps even true love - as friends beg him not to "throw it all away." But sometimes, getting lost is the only way back ...
