At only five years old, she was already a hit in Quebec. At thirteen she conquered the big city, Montreal, using the name Alys Robi. She captivated the world, including Hollywood where studios wanted to sing her and the press idolized her. But at the height of her popularity, she was institutionalized against her will by her father. Medical authorities suggested one treatment: a lobotomy. Under the operating room's blinding lights, Alys sees the twenty-eight years of her life flash before her eyes: her debut with ""La Poune" , her first love Olivier Guimond who she left for her manager Lucio Agostini, who broke her heart. She personified the American dream. Hers is a story of triumph, glory and love. But, beneath it all lurked a horrible truth that completely changed her life.
