What's the plot of 'Priscilla'?

According to Deadline, the official synopsis reads as follows:

"When teenage Priscilla Beaulieu meets Elvis Presley at a party, the man who is already a meteoric rock-and-roll superstar becomes someone entirely unexpected in private moments: a thrilling crush, an ally in loneliness, a gentle best friend."

The official synopsis continues, "Through Priscilla’s eyes, Sofia Coppola tells the unseen side of a great American myth in Elvis and Priscilla’s long courtship and turbulent marriage, from a German Army base to his dream-world estate at Graceland, in this deeply felt and ravishingly detailed portrait of love, fantasy, and fame."

It's clear that the story will follow the course of Elvis and Priscilla's relationship. The film is unique because it will focus on how their relationship impacted Priscilla, rather than being another story about Elvis's career. Priscilla steps into the spotlight with her love story with Elvis front and center. However, their story is told in her own way and on her own terms. The teaser trailer only builds the anticipation as fans eagerly wait to see the entire film.
