Summary
New Jersey, just before WWII. Chi Chi Donatelli is a talented and ambitious singer-songwriter working in a local blouse factory looking for her big break, while Saverio Armandonada, a singer already on the rise, is fronting a touring band and has the good looks and smooth vocals that make success seem assured. Saverio becomes Tony Arma and he and Chi Chi form a duo; together they navigate the glamorous worlds of nightclubs, radio, and television. Soon they're married and all goes well, but as the years pass it becomes clear that they must make a choice. Which of them will put ambition aside to build a family and which will pursue a career? What compromises will they make to achieve their dreams? -- adapted from Amazon.com info
