          For over fifteen years, Frank and Jack Baker have played duo pianos in a small lounge act. For awhile life was good, now, the venues are getting smaller and the bookings harder. Down to bowling alleys and tired clubs, they decide to hire a female singer, maybe turn their prospects around and avoid having to get a day job. They interview a number of women, but it’s only when they’ve given up and are ready to call it quits, that hard-edged Susie Diamond shows up with a bad attitude and a honeyed voice. Jack wants to hire her; Frank has his doubts. What neither of them know is their lives are about to get way more complicated, even as their act starts rising to the top once more.
