Ram and Eddie, jazz musicians living the exciting expat life in Paris, meet Lillian and Connie, two American ladies on vacation, and they all fall in love. Living and working in Paris is the ideal for the boys, as back home there are racial tensions and less love for jazz. Do they stay in France and give up their newfound romances? Louis Armstrong’s performance as Wild Man Moore is not to be missed.
