Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
This buddy-movie chronicles the exploits of two aspiring artists and their girlfriends as they try to achieve their dreams. The film is set in Antwerp during 1959. Jack is a sax player and his girl, Anita, a singer. As the story begins, they are seen practicing a bee-bop song in a small hall. Jack dreams about playing like Charlie "Bird" Parker in New York City. Instead, he works at the docks during the day and plays Belgium tea parties in the late afternoon. Jack's friend is Andre an avant-garde sculptor. Andre is only a little crazy. He gets involved with Lucy, who is also a little crazy. She causes Jack and Andre's friendship to disintegrate after she spends an innocent night in Jack's bed. Eventually Jack gets his chance to go to New York.
