By night, he sings and plays for money on the Dublin streets. A Girl from Czechoslovakia loves to play the piano when she gets a chance. During the day she does odd jobs. At night she takes care of her mom and her daughter. Guy meets Girl, and they get to know each other.

At the same time, the Guy and the Girl work through their past loves, and reveal their budding love for one another, through their songs
