Plot Summary

1952, Québec - Alys Robi, vocalist at the top of her popularity and recognized worldwide, was interned in spite of herself, by her father. Medical authorities prescribe her the only cure for a possible cure: the lobotomy. Under the bright lights of the operating room, Alys sees her 28-year life flash before her eyes. At age 13 she left alone to conquer the big city, Montreal, under the name Alys Robi. She first worked at the National Theatre with "La Poune" who takes her under her wing and then joined the cast of John Grimaldi. She met Olivier Guimond, her first love. Ambitious, she leaves to live a professional and romantic relationship with Lucio Asgotini who will eventually break her heart. Alys Robi charm a whole generation with her Latin rhythms such as "Tico Tico" and "Besame Mucho". She has conquered the world and Hollywood where MGM's desire and the American press call her a "Goddess". Alys Robi embodies the American dream, a story of triumph, glory, love, but also a story that hides a terrible truth that will change everything. Written by Anonymous
