Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
This sleazy little drama offers a grim slice from the lives of those who work in a seedy LA dime-a-dance ballroom. First there is ex-cop Miguelino who now makes a living finding ballrooms to buy while the drug-addicted dancer Sparkle gets drug money by informing for the mob. There is also the sharp-witted and freewheeling Mercedes and finally Billie, who puts up with the lasciviousness of her clients only during working hours. Billie is a dreamer and has fallen in love with two very different men. One is pizza delivery boy Bobby. The other is the wealthy Diamond Jim, a professional gambler who is unfortunately in deep trouble with local Vietnamese gangsters. When they suddenly show up to the gaudy dance hall to collect their debt from him, Billie gets caught in the middle and tragedy ensues.
