Soundtrack Plot: What is it about?
The show features a soundtrack for every emotion like love, pain, hurt, anger and more. Every song that a person has ever heard, connects them to what they love. The series features Sam, a young bloke with infinite love for music, trying to make a career out of his passion for the same. The classic ‘boy-meets-a-girl’ story starts to unfold when he meets Nellie. The two struggling artists connect through their love for songs and build a relationship full of emotions and passion. They try to contemplate the hardships of life and professional struggles to make it to the big picture. Though, amidst every pain and heartbreak, what they have is the support and love of each other.
Until a tragic incident happens. Nellie is in the hospital. The melody of love and passion slowly changes into the music of pain and hurt. Sam is grieving, hurting and worried but, he decides to stick to Nellie’s side through and through. Nellie feels that every bit of Sam’s effort, in the end, is going to turn worthless.
Almost every instance in the show is covered by a soundtrack that displays the emotion of every character. Whether it is a feeling of desire or first love, every song has a meaning to it because every song comes directly from the heart.
