Synopsis

A reimagining of jazz legend Chet Baker's life in the 1960s. When Chet (with talent to burn and movie-star looks that have him dubbed the “James Dean of Jazz“) stars in a film about himself, romance blossoms with the African American female lead, the enigmatic Jane. Production is shelved when a vicious beating leaves Chet in a condition where he may never play music again. Jane challenges Chet to avoid self-destruction, overcome his drug addiction, and mount a musical comeback against all the odds.
