Bette Midler astounds audiences with her electric performance as Rose, a rock-and-roll diva oozing with talent. Her Svengali-like manager, Rudge (Alan Bates), runs her life and forces her to tour constantly -- though alcohol and drugs seem to be Rose's true masters. Only her boyfriend, Dyer (Frederic Forrest), and her music give her any semblance of joy. But is that enough?
