Edith Piaf, the greatest French singer, was abandoned by her mother and was sent to live with her grandmother, who ran a brothel in Normandy. God wouldn’t allow her singing talent to lie buried. Cabaret owner Louis Leplée discovered her in the street and gave her a memorable stage name La Môme Piaf (The Little Sparrow). She sang from streets to cabarets and music hall, from working-class Paris to concert halls in New York, from poverty to fame, glory and despair.

酗酒的母親,衝動的馬戲團演員父親,冷漠的妓寨鴇母外婆,Edith Piaf 從一個人身邊被拋到另一人身邊。上帝不肯埋沒她美妙的歌聲,巧獲歌廳老闆 Louis 發掘,並給了她『小雲雀』(La Môme Piaf)的藝名。她從街頭唱到歌廳,從巴黎貧民窟唱到紐約音樂廳,一生飽嚐了貧窮,又體會過譽滿國際,榮耀和絕望的滋味。
