Ruth, Esther and Chloe long to pursue their own dreams. Their mother has other ideas.
Vivian’s three daughters have been singing in harmony since before they could speak. Together they are The Salvations, the hottest jazz band in San Francisco. But Vivian is even more ambitious for her girls, and she won’t stop until they’ve got their big break.
When The Salvations receive a once-in-a-lifetime offer from a renowned talent manager, Vivian knows this is exactly what she’s been praying for. But somewhere between the grind of endless rehearsals on the rooftop and the glamour of weekly gigs at the Champagne Supper Club, Ruth, Esther and Chloe grow up and start to imagine a life beyond their mother's reach.
Dancing to the rhythm of Jazz-era San Francisco, On the Rooftop is a stunning story of ambition, success, and three sisters determined to strike out on their own.
