"Can a Song Save Your Life?" follows Gretta (Knightley) and her long-time boyfriend (Levine) who, seduced by dreams of making it in the big city, move to New York to pursue their passion for music. She’s heartbroken when he dumps her for the fame and fortune of a big solo contract, leaving her all on her own.

Her world takes a turn for the better when a down-on-his-luck record producer (Ruffalo) stumbles upon her singing during an open mic night and is immediately captivated by her raw talent and inspiring authenticity - they may be each other’s last chance to turn their lives around.
