L'événement culturel de l'été à Bruxelles!
Poor white boy, Vince Everett, in a quarrel over a girlfriend, accidentally kills a man and is sentenced to ten years. In prison he’s taught to play guitar by a fellow prisoner called Hawk, and then gets spotted by Peggy van Aulden , a talent scour. On his release Vince becomes an overnight star and promptly turns his back on everyone who helped him, Hawk, Peggy, a black convict called Quickly, who helped him survive in prison, and even the ghost of his poor old Mama, who pops up now and again to tell about his childhood. Vince then suffers the pressure that money and fame can bring, and clashes with shifty record producers, Hollywood starlets and crafty lawyers until finally seeing the light.
