Before Carole King became the legendary singer-songwriter who helped define an era, she was a 16-year-old Brooklyn kid named Carole Klein trying to sell her songs to the big hitmakers in Times Square. When she meets a fellow Queens College student named Gerry Goffin, she gains the perfect lyricist for her music – and the love of her life. Soon, Carole and Gerry are churning out hits like “Take Good Care of My Baby,” “Up On A Roof, ”and “Will You (Still) Love Me Tomorrow” for acts like the Shirelles and The Drifters. But success in music doesn’t necessarily bring happiness, and as Gerry spirals out of control, Carole will need to find the strength to take back control of her life and career.
