From the Back Cover:

Tells the story of the swinging, all women's jazz band of the 1940s, which featured some of the best female musicians of the day. The International Sweethearts were stars at theatres and clubs around the country. They also performed overseas for American troops during WWII. Interviews with members of the band are interwoven with rare archival footage, musical performance excerpts, photographs and memorabilia from private collections. The film also examines the role of women and minorities in American society of the late '30s and early '40s.
