George Harrison is a world-famous guitarist and member of The Beatles. The year is 1964, and Beatlemania is in full swing. Girls all over the world are screaming and swooning at the sight of him. He's living the life, as it appears, but the only thing he wants is a break from the fame. Somewhere he can escape to without getting mobbed by a swarm of fans.
Clover Quinton is a brilliant Yale student with strict, wealthy parents. They're forcing Clover to become a neurosurgeon, with no verbal dispute from her. Although seemingly in-order and successful, Clover is severely depressed and goes to extreme lengths to help cope with the immense amount of stress she undergoes daily. She is extremely intimidated by her parents, and does everything they tell her to, no matter how much it hurts her. All Clover wants is an escape from her daily struggles, and the guts to tell her parents how she really feels.
One night, when Clover is overwhelmed with homework and studying, her best friend Maria Sims forces her to go out to a club with her. Having just taken depression medication, Clover becomes blackout drunk despite not drinking very much. The same night, George Harrison wakes up on a park bench near that same club with nothing but the clothes on his back and a strange locket he won at a poker game in his pocket. George finds the bar and recognizes Clover as the woman inside the locket and tries to ask her for help. Clover, however, is incapable of forming a coherent thought and instead ends up inviting him to her home and passing out on the kitchen floor. Once Clover regains consciousness and hears George's story, she becomes determined to help him find a way home.
