In 1981 Rick Springfield was inescapable. He had a hit song, a starring role on General Hospital, and his music videos were played non-stop on the newly launched MTV. Hits and awards trailed the success of ‘81, but, for the most part, Springfield was relegated to ‘that guy that sang Jessie’s Girl’. However, such is not the case for a core group of devoted fans. They pile onto Springfield cruises and deplete vacation time to attend many of Springfield’s 80-100 yearly shows. An Affair of the Heart is a biographical documentary that balances between the fans and the closely connected Springfield. The film explores the link between nostalgia and fanfare and the line between celebrity facade and reality.  The documentary contains surprising revelations and evolves into a portrait of a dedicated musician who works tirelessly to make up for wrongdoings of the past.
