Dakota is a musical comedy-drama feature film with an all new original soundtrack by international pop-star Phoebe Ryan, who also plays the titular character. Dakota is a talented but aimless singer, besieged by a failed relationship and struggling to make peace with her past. Dakota’s life wasn’t always at a stalemate. Dakota had once been offered a full-ride scholarship to a New York City graduate program for vocal performance, and her musical collaborations with her best friend Robert were gaining traction online. When Dakota meets Logan after a performance, she falls for him hard and fast, choosing him over the potential of her music career. Although Logan supports Dakota’s music, he’s suspicious of Dakota and Robert’s friendship. Logan’s jealousies eventually get the better of him and he breaks up with Dakota, even after she’s put her life on hold to be with him. Two years later, Dakota now works a dead-end job, lives at home with her mom, and struggles to cut ties with Logan, even years after their breakup. Estranged from Robert, and constantly arguing with her mother, Dakota is desperate to prove that she isn’t a failure. Feeling like she’s losing control of her life, Dakota decides to give music another chance, and sets out on a new path – albeit, not a straight one.
