Summary
"Based on a true story of love, music, and money. ... Three beautiful women visit record executive Morris Levy with one thing in mind: to claim the music royalties earned by their husband, the late, great '50s rock icon Frankie Lymon. They say good things and bad news always travel in threes: looks like the talented, troubled Frankie left more than his music behind."--Container
