The film explores the often uneasy but always beautiful relationship between music and love. It tells the story of a young Boston jazz musician, Guy (Jason Palmer) who drifts from one love affair to another, showing his trumpet the only constant in his life.
He makes a promising connection with a shy, aimless girl Madeline (Desiree Garcia), who immediately takes to his music. Their relationship doesn’t last long though as true to form Guy leaves her for another, more extrovert love interest. The two separated lovers slowly wind their way back into each other’s lives, through a series of romances and near-romances punctuated by song.
Shot in black and white 16mm, the film is a full-fledged musical that recasts the MGM tradition in a gritty, near-documentary style.
