A singer returns to the Paris club where she got her break years before. While preparing to go on stage she thinks about Jake, the club owner, who still has not returned to the stage where he was once a great performer. This feeds her own insecurities which pull her through her dressing room mirror into a world where an angry ghost attempts to set her up against Jake. She rejects this temptation, realizing that what haunts her helps her sing the blues.
