The story follows Priscilla Presley from when she met Elvis at 14 and living in Germany, through their multi-year courtship.

The synopsis of the film reads: “When teenager Priscilla Beaulieu meets Elvis Presley at a party, the man who is already a meteoric rock-and-roll superstar becomes someone completely unexpected in private moments: an electrifying crush, an ally in solitude, a sweet best friend. Through the eyes of Priscilla, Sofia Coppola tells the invisible side of a great American myth in the long courtship and turbulent marriage of Elvis and Priscilla, from a German army base to her dream estate at Graceland, in this portrait of love deeply felt and incredibly detailed, fantasy and fame.
