The story is told in a court room as three women claim to be married to Frankie are fighting over his estate. As each of the women tell their story, it flashback between the 50’s and 60’s as Frankie goes solo, lose his career, and battle drug abuse. Although the three women made compelling arguments, only one of them proved to be the real Mrs. Lymon and surprisingly another woman was entitled to the estate.
