Synopsis: New York City, 1935. Booze, big bands, and beautiful bombshells populate this grand city during a great depression. Vivienne St. Germain leads a glamorous life of a former showgirl thanks to her powerful husband, a politician named Walter Perry and due to the success of their supper club, Metropolis. She conceals the pains of her past, secretly longing for a lost love and to be the performer she once was before. With the heightened success of Metropolis, Walter's ego is growing. His appetite for wealth, power and other women are not sitting well with those who know him- including the neighborhood mob bosses. Vido Vecchio, a powerful gangster, negates on an agreement with Walter with an unwelcome appearance to the nightclub.

On this particular Saturday night there are other unexpected developments that could alter things indefinitely for Vivienne.
