This film is about the magic of music, the grace and generosity of mentorship, the strength of survival. Shot over the course of five years, this film depicts the remarkable story of 93-year-old jazz legend Clark Terry. A living monument to the Golden Era of Jazz, Terry – a mentor to Miles Davis and Quincy Jones among others – is one of the few performers ever to have played in both Count Basie’s and Duke Ellington’s bands. His newest protégé is Justin Kauflin, a blind, 23-year-old piano prodigy who suffers from debilitating stage fright. As Justin is about to compete in an elite Jazz competition, Terry’s health begins to falter. We live with them as they face their most frightening challenges. You will be  inspired by their resilience and optimism. And, be treated to some gorgeous music!
