The two lead characters, Eileen and Ruth set out from Ohio to New York, with the intention of being famous. Ruth is a writer sent on a wild goosechase to interview Portuguese sailors. They know no English except for the singing of La Congo. Christopher Street, a place of self-destruction, is where sisters Ruth and Eileen meet all sorts of unusual characters. Lippincott, a soda parlour dandy, and Chick Clark, a sleezy journalist, are two of Eileen’s suitor’s.
Based on the book by Joseph Fields and James Chodorov.
