Summary "Defying the wishes of his parents, the young Krupa sets out for New York in search of fame and fortune with his musician buddy, Eddie, and his small-town sweetheart Ethel. After Krupa's incredible talents are discovered, his rocketing career leaves little time for Ethel. Now playing in the fast lane, the hard-hitting drummer falls for sexy jazz singer, Dorissa, who introuduces him to drugs. But after serving time in jail and losing true-love Ethel, Krupa yearns for only one thing: a second chance at life and love"--Container.
