The story follows the life of cavalier heart-breaker Charlie Kilworth (Christian Campbell), a charismatic musician who leads a promiscuous life playing piano for a swing band in the 1930s.
This movie was released in 2003, but filmed in 1999. In an interview with Regis in January 2001, Stockard Channing mentioned she watched the pilot episode of The West Wing (1999) while filming in Canada. She said she was playing a lunatic in 1916 in soms insane asylum outside of Toronto. She had five days off and got a call asking if she wanted to play a part on The West Wing (1999). In the interview, she also mentioned that this movie was never released.
The movie was initially shown on The Movie Network as a two hour movie. It was later shown on the CBC as a two-part miniseries (four hours with commercials) with more footage of Charlies's mother Lily (played by Wendy Crewson). The initial version had her in only a few scenes.
