54 | 1998
Shane O'Shea was a 19-year-old, good-looking guy living with his severe dad and two siblings in a small, boring town in New Jersey... until he crossed the river into New York City and entered a world overflowing with luxury, sexual desire and decadence. A nightclub that was nothing less than the center of the universe - Studio 54. Shane's fast rise from busboy to the 'glamorous' job of being a shirtless waiter--puts Shane directly in competition with his equally ambitious buddy, Greg, a handsome busboy who's too short to work behind the bar and unwilling 'do what it takes' to 'advance his career'. Shane also befriends Greg's Latina wife, Anita, a coat check girl, also aspiring to be a star--a singing disco diva. The trio work under the erratic tutelage of their excessive yet nerdy club impressario--the famed Steve Rubell. All four of their lives collide during this summer of 1979 when the club went from it's height to its decline following IRS investigations.
