It's been a roller-coaster ride for Ricki Rendazzo (Meryl Streep), a one-time wife
and mother of three who left her family behind to follow her dreams of rock 'n' roll
stardom in California. Now, the singer and guitarist must face the music when she
returns home to Indiana to reconnect with ex-husband Pete (Kevin Kline), troubled
daughter Julie, engaged son Josh and younger son Adam. Filled with regret, Ricki
hopes to find redemption for all of the bad choices that she made in the past.
