In the screen version of Terence McNally's hit Broadway play, a dying mobster orders the death of his own son-in-law, Gaetano Proclo (Jack Weston), who hides out from the killers in a New York gay bath house. Several cases of mistaken identity allow him to escape execution and win the evening's talent contest as part of an Andrews Sisters routine. Rita Moreno plays the Puerto Rican singer Googie Gomez.
