Five young girls, equipped with musical instruments and a love for singing, leave from a small town in Tuscany to start a tour in the Far East. They dreamed of notoriety, but found themselves in a war. The year is 1968, and the war is the real one: the Vietnam War. After 50 years “the Stars” talk about their adventures among American soldiers, military bases lost in the jungle, and singing soul music. This documentary recounts the history through the eyes of its subjects, Rossella Canaccini, Franca Deni, and Daniela Santerini. In Italian and English with English subtitles.
