The smash-hit sensation tells the behind-the-scenes story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. The world was taken by surprise as these boys presented an unheard sound. Their perfect harmonies and stage presence had the public in the palm of their hands, but the offstage story was a different one altogether.
