WWII rages in ROSE'S WAR as Rose Sweet, a talented black singer-songwriter, shattered by the death of her white mother, walks in on a raucous rehearsal at The Pair O' Dice Club in Harlem. Rose is hungry to be a star. The club's owner, Cecil Clay, a troubled black trumpet virtuoso, leads the band and doesn't know, yet, that he is Rose's father. But she certainly does. Danny Capucci, Cecil's young white protégé, is in an airman's uniform playing the piano and singing a new hit song written by him and Cecil. Cecil is furious that Danny is going off to war and fearful he'll never return. Fearlessly Rose offers to replace Danny, and after an impressive audition singing and dancing with Danny, Cecil hires her as his cigarette girl, to start. Rose and Danny are in love and pledge to write each other every day. As Rose struggles to make it in a white-ruled music business, Danny is getting more and more terrified that he won't survive his next bombing mission.
