Lola Bensky is a nineteen-year-old rock journalist who irons her hair straight and asks a lot of questions. Lola spends her days planning diets and interviewing rock stars. In London, Mick Jagger makes her a cup of tea, Jimi Hendrix possibly propositions her and Cher borrows her false eyelashes. In Los Angeles, she discusses being overweight with Mama Cass and tries to pluck up the courage to ask Cher to return those false eyelashes.
