This young Irish couple came to America to build a dream of having their own traditional Irish Pub. From the small farm beginnings…

This young Sicilian couple came to America to realize Jeff’s dream of becoming a successful jazz musician in the new world. From a modest homestead where they toiled and sacrificed but where so happy.

Banned from participating from the Elks Clubs in the region, leaders in the African American community formed The Saratoga Black Elks – Of the World. This inclusive organization welcomed all races. We see the Elks community embracing a young mixed race couple.

…they work their way up until they find themselves now with their own successful restaurant and rooming establishment.

They finally realize the dream. Cristina drives Jeff to a big gig at the Principessa – Italian Mens Club. Though now very materially successful, you can see the stress of a modern lifestyle in their demeanor.

We see a block party were local activist poet D. Colin performing to a neighborhood group while one of the more conservative members of the Elks looks askance on their leisure activity.
