Florence Foster Jenkins, a wealthy society eccentric suffered under the delusion that she was a great coloratura soprano when she was, in fact incapable of producing two consecutive notes in tune. Nevertheless, her annual recitals in the ballroom of the Ritz-Carlton Hotel brought her extraordinary fame. Her reluctant accompanist tells her story and his contempt eventually gives way to admiration, friendship, and affection. His attitude is revised, not only towards her singing but also to the very meaning of music itself.
