Set in 1960s Liverpool, the mini-series begins with Black working as a typist while spending her free time performing at the city’s famed Cavern Club.
It is here that she meets young singer-songwriter Bobby Willis (Barnard). Black gets her shot at the big-time when she auditions for the Beatles’ manager Brian Epstein (Stoppard). Unfortunately, a bad case of nerves ruins her chances.
Three years later, Bobby urges her to give singing a second chance, and Epstein allows her to audition for him again. Black releases her debut single but it fails to break into the Top 30.
