To honor him, a Hollywood producer offers Chet Baker, the legendary jazz trumpeter of the 1960s, to star in a feature film about his life. During the shooting, Chet falls madly in love with Jane, his Afro-American partner. Unfortunately, the production is stopped the day when, in a parking lot, Chet is beaten.
Annihilated, the jaws shattered, the artist turns back on himself, and his past revives his demons. Jane nevertheless succeeded in convincing him to go forward, to remain sober and, thanks to the music, to regain the recognition of his peers.
