WALTZ FOR MONICA
Having it all comes at a price
Monica, a young, rebellious small town girl is determined to make it as a singer in the vibrant jazz clubs of Stockholm, and even New York City, in the sixties. Beautiful and sensual, she embarks on the singing career of her dreams, and an exquisite singer and actress evolves in the golden era of jazz.

But behind all the glamour, Monica struggles to face the dark side of fame and success. As late nights of working and partying keep playing a bigger part in her life, the walls around her begin to shake. With a string of broken love affairs, a father she can never please, and a daughter to whom she’ll never be the perfect mother, Monica finds herself feeling more lost than ever. And when the morning breaks, she’s alone, with a cocktail in her hand. Is this a road with no turning back?
