Soho – London, 1943. Polish émigré Lenny, is busy scraping a living
as a drummer around the new jitterbugging jazz dives - fuelled by
the American troops arriving in the city. He’s also trying to win
the heart of Sonia, the elusive, fiery diva, and, along with newly
recruited sidekick Al, a black GI trumpeter, they form a band, dodge
the bombs, the police and hard-nosed spivs - with the drummer’s
black market stash in tow.
Meanwhile, unbeknown to Lenny, Hitler’s hidden mistress, Eva Braun
has taken a liking for a waltz that he and his brother composed and
recorded in the Thirties….Then - Eva’s scheming, future
brother-in-law, SS officer Hermann Fegelein arrives on the scene,
discovers the tune’s origins and takes an unwelcome interest!
