All they know now is each other and the fantasy world they have created; a world where anything is possible and life is a beautiful game.In this new world of spectacular and child-like imagination, their broken and desolate wasteland becomes a utopia. But what happens when memory and the nightmare of their past comes back to haunt them?

Once the smooth crooning kings of soul music, The Doves are now on the other side of the fence; more than a bit outdated, estranged from one another, and plagued by the cramps and impediments of old age. After years apart, they come together again when a producer suggests a reunion album and possible tour. They may be a bit rusty but they still have the magic, that wonderful combination of soulfulness and sweet sincerity that made the ladies swoon. Reunited for a shot at a last gasp tour, they realize that along with old music comes old conflicts. Told with humor and real tenderness, Get Ready is the story of legendary musicians stepping once again into the light.
