Synopsis

Three young brothers take a secret sunset journey across a river to a pleasure island that's always been forbidden to them. Through the eyes of these juvenile protagonists, the viewer experiences an impressionistic immersion into a beguiling kaleidoscope of dancers, musicians, hustlers, drag queens and revelers that parade through the lamp-lit streets between Rampart and the river. While the kids can only glance at the glittery surface, the camera follows the melodies that emanate from these corridors to admit the viewer into the cabarets, into the dark alleyways, next to the barflies, behind the curtains and on the bandstand with the people who make this place their audience, their stage, their home.
