Winning an Academy Award for the Best Original Song Written for a Motion Picture, the two main characters of the film- who remain unnamed through the picture- are in fact an actual band called The Swell Season. The soundtrack of this independent Irish production is the perfect score to set the tempo for the love story that unfolds on the streets of Dublin, thus it's no surprise that it was nominated for two Grammy awards. 

Guy is a guitarist by night, vacuum repairman by day, and he's hoping to finally cut a demo to take to London and try to nail a record contract. She is a Czech immigrant, and plays the piano whenever she has a chance to, from odd jobs and taking care of her child and mother. Two musicians meet in Dublin embarking on a journey of making astounding music. The couple spends their week around town writing, rehearsing and recording their music. Most astounding is how their love story begins to shine through their songs.
