Velma is a star showgirl in Vegas at the time that bare-breasted spectacles were introduced during the Fifties. She becomes the mistress of casino boss, Marcus Lambrusco, and bears him a son. Senatorial investigations drive Lambrusco to exile in Sicily.

Son Danny, raised by Velma in retirement, becomes an attorney/FBI agent. He lures Lambrusco back from Sicily by faking Velma's funeral.
