anger. After Kim tries running away, Lisa reconciles with Kim, who eventually

Synopsis 1:
Emotions are intense at the St. Gregory as aspiring singers
including, receptionist Julie, compete on a TV talent show.
Synopsis 2:
The TV show, "Catch A Rising Star," uses the hotel ballroom for the finals
of its talent contest, whose top prize is a recording contract and $10,000
in cash. The hotel also welcomes top scientists in a NASA "think tank,"
and FBI security is heavy. Julie unwittingly becomes a finalist in the
talent contest, because Dave and Megan submitted her tape. Although Julie
would like the $10,000 to give to her grandfather's medical clinic in Africa,
she's not interested in a singing career. Among the NASA scientists is
Claire Talbot Ames (MICHELLE PHILLIPS), wife of Mike Ames (ALAN FEINSTEIN),
Peter's college roommate. Claire finds evidence that Mike is a spy and
takes her problem to Peter. Peter and FBI agents catch Mike photographing
a top-secret project, and Mike is gunned down. Hysterical, Claire goes to
the van where FBI agents have carried his body and finds him alive! Mike
was working with the Soviets, and the "murder" was his way out. Julie finds
a mutual attraction with another contestant, Nelson Hayes (CARL ANDERSON),
who mistakenly believes, however, that Julie is romancing a judge to
influence his vote. Julie and Nelson reconcile, and when Nelson wins, he
gives Julie the $10,000 for her grandfather's clinic, since the recording
contract is what he really wanted.
