Barry Manilow's hit song is the inspiration for this movie. The film opens in 1948 with Manilow starring as an aspiring songwriter, Tony. Working as a pianist in a bar, he meets Lola (Annette O'Toole) who wants to make...展开it in show business. Tony is immediately smitten with the beautiful woman. At Manhattan's Copacabana lounge, they both start finding fame. However, fate steps in and she is swept to Havana to work in a splashy night club act where she is convinced she will find her stardom. Instead she finds Rico (Joseph Bologna), a suave gangster who manages the club.
