Musical drama written by and starring Roland Gift, one of our finest soul singers and ex-lead singer of the 1980s band Fine Young Cannibals.
Johnny Holloway, an ex-pop star wrongly convicted of drug dealing, gets out of prison and is picked up on his release by his "brother from another mother", Sean. Having missed the funeral, Johnny asks to be taken to the wake of his colleague Frank to pay his respects. When he gets there, he finds he has inherited his nightclub - the Las Vegas - much to the disgust of Frank's son, Ricky.
To add insult to injury, Johnny used to be with Ricky’s wife Carol. He's determined to right a few wrongs and, when Ricky steps out of line, Johnny sees the way forward - he needs to battle an old rival to win the girl he loves.
It's a story about love, felony and betrayal. Who will rise above and win the day?
Recorded on location in Gerry’s Club in Soho, London, with music written by Gift and Barson and performed by Roland Gift and members of the cast.
