Anthony Verdi (INNIS CASEY) is a young man caught between his dream of being a full-time musician and the conventional life of his conservative father (TOM SKERRITT, "Tears of the Sun," TV's "Picket Fences") and long-time fianc (DAHLIA WAINGORT).
Working at his father's grocery store is not Anthony's dream job but it pays the bills and will provide for him and his bride-to-be.
However, a chance visit to a 1940s-style swing dance club changes his life forever.
He meets Christine (played by international beauty--JACQUELINE BISSET, "Wild Orchid," "The Deep," "Class"), a ravishing older woman who teaches him the art of swing dancing. Now, Anthony must decide between a life of security and a life of passion.
Fortunately, he has the encouragement of several important people around him-- his loving great-uncle (legendary comedian JONATHAN WINTERS), who is determined that Anthony not meet with the same "what-could-have-been" fate of his musician brother; his outrageous bass-playing roommate (MINDY SOHN "Scooby-Doo and the Loch Ness Monster," "Scooby-Doo! Mystery Mayhem"); and the head of his great-uncle's nursing home (the late NELL CARTER, in her final performance, Tony award-winner for "Ain't Misbehaving," TV's "Gimme a Break") who recognizes Anthony's talent and leads him to his important decision.
Ultimately, what Anthony learns is that real happiness can only be found by following your passion. Beautifully shot in San Francisco, SWING, with its positive message and exciting swing dance sequences, will move your feet as well as your heart!
