New York City, 1914. Suzanne and Jada. Sisters-- and wealthy employer and devoted maid. Together, they realize Suzanne's dream to see her name in lights on Broadway as she becomes the dazzling Ziegfeld Follies' rising new star. But Jada's superb voice and dance skills give her an unexpected shot at her own success. When a jealous Suzanne reveals a shattering secret, their friendship becomes a bitter rivalry. As Suzanne consoles herself with dashing suitors and champagne nights, Jada transforms into Harlem's hottest nightclub sensation.
