Two friends, ex-WWII GI’s turned jazz musicians, have had great success performing in Paris nightclubs for the past 10 years. Convinced that their mixed-race act will also be a hit in the U.S., they decide to return home. To 1950s Georgia. Inspired by the true story of the first integrated nightclub in Atlanta and featuring ten original jazz songs in the style of the era, Nick’s Flamingo Grill is a story of hope and brotherly love. It’s not easy to build a palace of peace and harmony. The trick is to keep trying.
