La La Land is the story of Mia (Emma Stone) and Sebastian (Ryan Gosling) who are both pursuing their dreams in a city known to destroy hopes and break hearts. Mia is an aspiring actress in Hollywood who serves lattes to movie stars in a coffee shop at a film studio. While Sebastian is a talented jazz pianist scraping by playing cocktail party gigs in dingy bars who dreams of opening his own jazz club.

Mia and Sebastian encounter each other in a few antagonistic chance meetings and eventually become attracted to each other.  With a mutual respect of each others passion for their dreams of making it big in their respective fields, they eventually fall in love.  But as success mounts, they are each faced with decisions that fray the fragile fabric of their love affair and the dreams they worked so hard for and threatens to rip them apart.  With modern-day Los Angeles as the backdrop, this musical about everyday life explores what is more important: a once-in-a-lifetime love or the spotlight.
